Service Learning Day- Grade 6

For Service Learning Day in 6th grade, students participated in a variety of activities to get them thinking about service. The purpose of the day was to become aware of the consequences of acting out of self-interest versus acting in the interest of others and to begin thinking about the ways that they can become agents of change. Students particpated in an eye-opening simulation called “the ice cream simulation”, they had an opportunity to reflect. Grade 6 held a town hall meeting and then each advisory did some service research and at the end of the day they were given chalk to write some inspirational quotes of something that resonated with them. Students reported a fun day of learning! A special thanks to Ms. Guggisberg for her planning and the Grade 6 teachers and TAs who helped to make the day a success.
