This lesson will emphasize that our community in the school is an important part of students' lives and building that community must start with trusting one other student. This lesson gives the students a chance to share their new knowledge of trust and community with other students and also allows them to learn through Multiple Intelligences.

Students will see an example of philanthropy in Native American culture in literature. They will then analyze their own special gifts or talents and determine how the family can gain from them.

Students will create a backdrop of all the students' hands linked together to show trust within the classroom. This will be used later in the Unit. This activity is designed to keep the students focused on trusting one another.
