Student Teacher


In this lesson, students will attempt to answer this question: How can they, as third graders, help people who live across the world from them with a problem such as unclean or not enough water? Students will view a PowerPoint about Global Interdependence and the teacher will guide a discussion of the implications of unsafe water. How easy is it for most students in the U.S. to access clean water? jStudents will also discuss what might happen if the water in their community became compromised. What can they do about the issue both in their own communities and in South Sudan? Student groups will research different fundraising possibilities for helping Salva Dut's Water for South Sudan and prepare research notes. Using these notes, groups will present a fundraising possiblity to the class, which will then choose one to participate in. Teacher will assist the children in voting on one project to support. This lesson was developed by Amber Honeycutt as part of their completion of the North Carolina Global Educator Digital Badge program. This lesson plan has been vetted at the local and state level for standards alignment, Global Education focus, and content accuracy.
