Kids Helping Kids (Service Learning)
Empower our children to strengthen their community.
Service Learning is an education strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection. It is designed to help enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility and strengthen communities. Here are just a few lesson plan resources that you can utilize to help youth understand the importance of service:
- Alex’s Baking Bread for Childhood Hunger – students will learn about the problem of childhood hunger and the needs in their own community by baking and selling homemade bread to raise money.
- Raye’s My Healthy Plate (two lessons) – introduces children to the reality of childhood hunger in their region and teaches the difference between companies that are for profit and nonprofit and the types of work they do.
- Nija’s Trail Mix Project – offers an opportunity for students to make a difference in their community regarding childhood hunger by helping make Trail Mix and practicing communication and writing skills as they reflect.
- Elice’s Packing a Sack Supper – students will recognize that hunger is an issue in their community that they can do something about by brainstorming ways they can take action, and then using math and writing skills to analyze.
