Sometimes students think they are too young to make a difference. But you're never too young to help others.
The IB Community Project is your chance to find something in your heart that matters and work toward making a positive impact.
1.Create a folder in your Google Drive and call it “IB Community Project”. (You will keep this folder through 8th grade)
2.In that folder, create a Google Doc. Title it “Community Project Ideas”.
3.On your document, list any community and service activities that you have already completed.
4.Now, pick one (or more) of the activities you listed and explain:
•WHO you impacted…
•WHY you enjoyed it…
5.From your last response, would you like to continue making that same impact?
If YES, then think of some additional ways to continue making an impact with that community.
-For example: If you have already served food at a homeless shelter, what else could you do on a bigger scale to make a difference? Start your own clothing drive for the shelter, knit blankets for the people, raise money/ gather toys for the kids, etc..)If NO, look at the examples on the Community Project slideshow starting at slide 15 to help you...
This is Ms. Gurthie's place for students at Piedmont and elsewhere to find resources to fuel their passions. Besides making fun lesson ideas for teachers, I wanted this space to provide PD for students too!
