INVOLVING CHILDREN IN COMMUNITY PROJECTS-Arc March & Visit

Standard

For our community project this March, we raised money (and a few of the kids walked in the walk as well) for the Annual Arc March. Since I like the kids to be able to be hands on in our projects, not only did we graph who raised money and how much, but we took a visit to one of the Arc locations and did an activity with the kids there so we could learn a little bit more about the Arc (https://www.arceci.org/).

Skills Learned During This Project:
-Talked about helping others
-Read about disabilities
-Talked about how the children learn even though they are disabled
-Got to see in person some of the equipment the kids use (wheel chairs, speaking devices, noise cancelling headphones)
-Learned more about how to graph
-Counting
-Counting by 10’s
