Kid president has several videos that help get this message across, but we like to start with this one.
We read many of the classic back to school read aloud books such as:
- Chrysanthemum by Kevin Henkes
- A Fine, Fine, School by Sharon Creech
- Me First by Helen Lester
- Decibella by Julia Cook
- Spaghetti In A Hot Dog Bun by Maria Dismondy
- The Name Jar by Yansook Choi
- My Mouth Is A Volcano by Julia Cook
- What If Everybody Did That? by Elen Javernick
Have you been to Disney's Citizen Kid website yet? If not, you really need to check it out! It is filled with inspiring videos and pictures of kids around the world taking action to be the change in the world! We watch several of these video clips and use a graphic organizer to record the community, the citizen, the action and the impact in each video.
We also recently discovered Epic has many wonderful FREE books that support this unit, these are just a few that we have read so far!
These are just a few of the resources we use to inspire our students to be the change in the world. To read more about some additional resources on this topic please check out these posts on my blog Mom2punkerdoo.
