Hello everyone, I need help: As a student teacher next semester I need to come up with a community service project that my first grade students can do. We were given no specific guidelines, but I am having trouble coming up with ideas. The school where I am placed is in a low SES area and most of my students will probably not have much “extra” to contribute (monetary). I had thought of maybe collecting cans, recycling them and donating the money to a charity that the students vote on. I also thought of collecting canned goods and donating them to the food bank. However, I was wondering if any of you have done anything like this. I would like to do something that the students can enjoy. My personal goal is that the students in my class will realize that even as first graders they can make a difference. Any suggestions?
