The purpose of this lesson is to help the students understand that they can make a difference to someone by donating earning money to donate to a charity.
The learner will:
- volunteer their time and talents to earn money that will be donated to a charity.
Students will raise money to donate to the Ronald McDonald House or a local charity.
Ask students to close their eyes and then raise their hands if they feel that sometime in the future they will probably be a real hero. Ask students to open their eyes and see how many hands are up. Talk about the possibility that every one of them could be a hero now by becoming philanthropists by giving of their time talents and treasure to help some, not just possibly sometime in the future.
Teacher Note: Students should be reminded to only work for their family members or people that their families know.
Put the following statement on the chalk board, "What I gained by participating in this project." Either orally or in writing have students address the statement.
This project could be extended to include more classes or the entire school.
