Voting Counts (civic responsibility)
The student service-learning project at 7th grade is peer mediation. Each year we train about 250 students to become mediators in the school building. All 7th grade students also do a service-learning project in their social studies class each year. The projects vary from year to year based on community needs.
Children designed "Winter Holiday" cards which were sold to family and friends. Profits from the boxes sold went to two local churches. This class project involved cooperative learning groups - each group was responsible for designing one card. The activity integrated math, writing, language and social studies. Next we will be doing an interdisciplinary project with the Humane Society dealing with the care and protection of animals.
