Living in a Community: Intro. to Philanthropy
Children learn what it means to be a philanthropist. They recognize that they belong to many different communities that work together for the common good - classroom, sports teams, interest or faith groups, neighborhood, and friend groups.
The children learn that even young people can be philanthropists. Philanthropy is giving time, talent, treasure for the good of the community.
We define community as "coming together with a common purpose" and brainstorm communities we are part of: classroom, sports team, interest and faith groups, and neighborhood. We reflect on how philanthropy and trust affect the common good of the community.
