Bridging the Gap by Doing Philanthropy

Turn your middle schoolers into civic-minded members of the community. After engaging in a service learning activity, they write about it in a journal, an essay and an observation report, then complete a project summarizing their experience. They are involved in various activities at a nursing home in the community.
