TeachOne in your classroom or rally others in your building to TeachOne on #GivingTuesday, November 28.
- Bedtime Bags In this one period lesson, students learn about people and children who are homeless and make bedtime bags for children in shelters as their service project.
- GivingTuesday In this one period lesson, students define philanthropy and discuss the joy of giving, as well as various ways to give through nonprofits in the community.
- Impact of Giving In this one period lesson, students investigate local and global hunger issues, and learn about nonprofits in the community. As a service project, the students organize an event, such as a volunteer fair or game-a-thon, and raise awareness of the issue of hunger and of giving opportunities available to students and families.
- Delivery Gratitude Day In this one period lesson, students focus on the meaning and benefits of gratitude. Students give examples of what people give up (opportunity cost) when they give philanthropically. For their service project, students will decide how they can 'deliver gratitude' to a deserving person or group. They will then complete a service such as writing thank you notes.
Interdisciplinary themes: social studies, SEL, stewardship, nonprofit and for-profit, critical thinking, language, math, science, art, doing good
These evaluations may be completed by parents and families, community partners, students, and teachers, and may be used in conjunction with any Learning to Give lesson, toolkit, or resource. The goal is to help you collect information about the impact of your philanthropy and service-learning instruction.
