Activity 1:

To identify ways to make a difference in your community

[lo 3.3]

Class Assignment

This report and article are only two examples of how learners can demonstrate that they really care about their fellow human beings and animals. Identify ways in which you can make a difference in your neighbourhood by showing that you care. Local newspapers are keen to publish reports and photographs of schools that endeavour to make the world a better place for all. This is an opportunity for acting as a good ambassador for your school!
