Include TeachOne in Your School Year Plan
TeachOne includes three vibrant turnkey initiatives for 2018-19, each with a lesson plan and project for grades K-5, 6-8, and 9-12.

TeachOne – with your classroom or whole school – to empower your students to want to “do good” and “do well.”

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.
*You must have an active Learning to Give account to access the evaluation materials.
Learning to Give is interested in data related to school participation. We encourage you to send us copies of your evalutaions when you are done with them.
Connecting with Educators
When you TeachOne, remember to share the lesson and project with your colleages and media. Tell us what you and your students did, and look to Learning to Give to connect you with a similar grade level in another state doing the same lesson and project.
K-12 #ToteChallenge: Students investigate the problems caused by plastic shopping bags, then propose solutions they can take to address the problems. They brainstorm uses for plastic bags and design a reusable shopping tote out of an old T-shirt using engineering, problem-solving, creativity, and communication. They take action by using and sharing their homemade totes and by educating the community about problems and solutions to the plastic bag crisis.
