Sports Heroes and Private Action for the Common Good

Young readers explore philanthropy and its effects on the public good. They discuss athletes and their examples as philanthropists. They research a sports hero and play "The Match Game" to determine what they know about other sports heroes. They discuss National Philanthropy Day and ways to celebrate it. Extend this lesson into a research paper which requires middle schoolers to use textual evidence to support their arguments.
