I teach two third grade Social Studies classes in Biloxi, Mississippi. The students are being taught from the "Expanding Horizon" theme. They are learning we are interdependent on one another. In the past, I was only able to discuss how communities all over the United States depend on each other. Last year we learned this lesson by first hand experience. Communities all over the United States sent help to the Mississippi Gulf Coast to aid our community after Hurricane Katrina. Many of my students lost everything. They were grateful for all that was done for them. I wanted to find a way to show them they could also aid others in the community. We decided to make cards, and crafts for patients at our local hospital. The response was amazing. We received a thank you note after each delivery to the hospital. The students were amazed when they saw they had made someone's day a little brighter. They learned even though they were just 8 and 9 year old students, they could do something to help make a difference in our community. I would like my present classes to experience helping others in the community. We had limited resources last year, so the items we made were very basic. In this grant, I am asking that items be purchased to make cards, and crafts for our "Reaching Out" project.
