Awesome Idea!
Old 08-27-2006, 05:11 AM

This is part of the 5th grade curriculum at our school. All 5th graders are required to do a service learning project, write a reflection on it, and present it orally, using a visual aid. Of course, your 2nd graders would be overwhelmed by that...but they could still do the service and a mini-reflection
Some ideas might be:
-having a collection at school for a community charity (food bank, humane society, veteran's hospital, etc.)
-doing a school beautification project (picking up debris or planting flowers)
-making cards for a local hospital or nursing home (works really well around holidays like Christmas and Valentine's Day)
-making and delivering stories, poems, or cards to a local nursing home
-sponsoring a school-wide penny drive for a charity of their choice

Hope that helps!
