The Problem

Students within the classroom with have a connection with their own community and the world at large. They will learn how the world is interconnected, since we all live in communities and wish for the same quality of living. Students will learn first how to make their own community a better place to live and then therefore, transfer their understanding to a the world stage.

Our Plan

The project will be sequential starting with school community, town, and then world. Learners will first learn what a community is and how they are a part of a larger group of people. Then taking what they know about their school community will apply towards their town. They will participate in a community mapping inventory to determine within the three areas: beautification, landscape, plants, and trees, and wildlife; how they can enhance the town they live in. Finally, after the mapping complete a project based on at least on of the three focuses. If possible connect with another second grade class to blog about their learning.
