We will meet at the Hillary Clinton Library and have grief specialists on hand as we create art with children in hospice as a means to work through some of the unbearable pain they are experiencing. We’ll also play and interact with them and them and their parents work through some very emotionally tough issues.

Each child will create a scrapbook that will feature their responses to all activities with photos, articles, essays, reflections, art work, responses to world-current events & what's going on in their own communities, book reviews and much more. They will invite the public to respond to their blog posts, videos, psa's and hopefully, receive responses to their letter writing campaigns and petitions. They will continually self assess their learning with frequent personal reflections, partner activities and Socratic Seminar style class discussions that will take place throughout the process.

It is shown in studies that the way kids grow up affects the way they live the rest of their lives. When we see our community, we see ourselves in a way. We see the good parts and the bad parts. We see the kids playing in the parks, we see our cars, our homes, our schools, the buildings we work in. But, we also see the parts in us that we can improve on. One way we can improve the community is put in a garden. Our group of seven student plan to do a flower garden in the front of our school and put a vegetable garden in the back of the school. We think that putting this in could improve our school and the spirit that we have for it. One small change can make a big difference.
