Good Shepherd School’s 6th graders
Learning about other cultures and anthropology from a text book isn’t quite the same as getting a up close, behind the scenes look. To learn, sometimes we need to experience things on a deeper level. The 6th graders at Good Shepherd Lutheran School in Illinois learned that first hand.
After the classrooms decided to collectively sponsor a camera and intimately learn about another culture, every student pitched in to raise money for the cause. Allowance, mowing lawns, saving birthday money, and even going door-to-door, the students actively found ways to contribute to a cause and became young activists.
The 6th grade class of Good Shepherd Lutheran proves that every person can do something to change the world. It’s collective smaller acts that make the biggest impact on the world. Without a doubt, this experience will influence them in the future and provide a great example to their peers!
