Grade 5 students had several ideas for their final Service Learning project at Trinity.
After much discussion and some debate, they voted on peace as a general topic with interest both in world peace and community peace such as strategies to stop bullying. They wanted to connect these ideas in a fun and interactive way, especially in a way that wouldn’t be scary for younger students.
They decided on “Choose your Own Adventure” style games where students would make choices about behavior in a certain school scenario and the end would show connections to world issues such as: war and conflict over scarcity or for power, disarmament, racism, and immigration issues.
The project ended with students reflecting on what they would do in different scenarios and how they could personally be more peaceful.
