Make change in the community! Create a symbolic coin that showcases a pledge to make your town a better place to live.
Ask students if they have ever noticed anything about their community that they wished they could improve? Is there a section of the town that is littered and needs to be cleaned up? Have they seen a homeless person in need of food and shelter? Maybe within the school they noticed students bullying or teasing each other?
Ask students what they can do to change these situations. How can they make their community a better place to live?
Students create a large coin by carefully cutting a circle out of recycled cardboard and covering it with aluminum foil. Secure the foil in place with a piece of clear adhesive tape on the back of the coin.
Students draw a self-portrait in the center of the coin using Crayola Slick Stix™. Slick Stix contain pigments that may stain clothing, fabrics and other household surfaces. Wear a smock to protect clothing and cover the work surface with recycled newspaper.
Students decorate the rest of the coin with symbols that represent their pledge to the community. They can draw food if they are going to collect canned goods for a local food bank or a broom if they vow to help clean up the local parks!
Students share their coin with the class. Students that made the same pledge can partner up to put their plans in action!
