Students explore the components and meaning of philanthropy. In this community awareness lesson, students are able to identify and research agencies and organizations that provide services to children in need, compare and contrast philanthropic efforts and define philanthropy and its relationship to homeless children by reading case studies, finding local agencies, visiting a philanthropy group and creating a graphic organizer over their findings and personal journey.

Lesson Planet provided the materials during student teaching that helped reinforce the skills I taught my students. I am now using it in China to help with teaching ESL. It is a wonderful resource and I will keep subscribing!
