School: North Bay School Board: Near North District School Board Grade: Senior Kindergarten Student: Megan
Megan is 5 years old and is currently in Senior Kindergarten. This is her very first school project and this is a video she has made to share with her classmates.
Megan wanted to help her sponsored child Shubham Subhashreach the goal of having a birthday party this year. She decided to do something she loves, which happened to be making crafts such as tutus, necklaces and keychains and sell them to her family and friends. The funds raised from this project will be sent to World Vision in support of a community birthday party for Shubham and the children in his village.
We love how Megan’s teachers have broken down her project to answer the following questions:
What am I doing?
Who am I helping
Why am I doing this?
How does this make me feel?
How much money have I raised?
What a great way to get kindergarten students active in their community and making a difference!
