Some Who Is NOBODY? Projects completed by this class: Helping the homeless & food bank
Oriole Park Public School has had 7 classes participate for 3 years in a row. Last year the 7 classes used Who Is GREEN? and did amazing projects to help the environment. Who Is GREEN? comes with a green doll (rather than the blue doll from Who Is NOBODY?) and becomes a class mascot that inspires students to help the community in creative ways. For example, recycling hockey equipment so children who could not play otherwise are able to take part.
Susan Hay shares how Who Is NOBODY? helps students get direction for their Mandatory Community Involvement Hours.
