Community Helpers Project:

See Microsoft Teams for more info. 

This is a challenging time for everyone, including those in your community.  In times like these, it is a great chance to make your community even better and stronger.  Let's acknowledge those heroes(essential workers) by completing this fun project.

Emotional Tracker: See how your emotions change before and after diving into this project.

Question to keep in mind: Why is it so important to help the community right now, specifically essential workers?

List of Essential Workers: Doctors, nurses, health care providers, police, fire, EMS, Con Edison, News reporters, etc.  

Writing: After reading some texts in the set I assign, respond to the following questions in discussion channel:

-What is one way you'd like to help in your community?

-How do you think this would help?

Photo: Picture of you holding a student made sign, including inspirational message (Thank you, We support you, Stay Strong, You are my Hero, etc) to an essential worker.

Project Ideas: Choose one: due Friday 4/10

-Make a poster to thank and encourage one of the essential workers of your choice (posters can be computer paper, you do not have to go out and purchase one)

-Make a collage using old newspapers and magazines about how essential workers help your community

-Create a comic strip about a character who helps their community

-Create a fictional story about a character who helps their community 

-Create a SWAY of the essential workers in your community.  Explain how each is a hero during this time.(This is only for those who know how to create Sways.)

Sharing: I would like to share your work on our school website, so be sure to try your best and take a picture of your final project along with you holding it.  Share it to the chat channel when you are finished on Friday.

You never know unless you try!

Grit is passion and perseverance for very long-term goals. Grit is having stamina. Grit is sticking with your future, day-in, day-out. Not just for the week, not just for the month, but for years. And working really hard to make that future a reality. Grit is living life like it’s a marathon, not a sprint.
Dr. Angela Lee Duckworth
