Unit Overview 

Students role-play experiences of the lives of the early pilgrims in their travels from Europe to America in search of religious freedom. Students work cooperatively for the common good, learn about ways in which the Native Americans were philanthropists, and begin to perform random acts of kindness.

Service Experience 
Students recognize the value to the community of being philanthropists. They will perform simple acts of kindness for others in their “community” with increasing regularity. They record their acts on a bulletin board and build community capital in the classroom and school (and home).
