Product Description
PROJECT BASED LEARNING: PLAN A COMMUNITY FOR THE HOMELESS Students are going to establish a community for the homeless. After researching the different causes and effects of homelessness, they will plan the community with services and activities. This PBL unit focuses on a real-world problem, while incorporating 21st century skills. I am so proud of the project and I think your students will love it. It is based on a community for the homeless that has been established here in Austin. (ALL PROCEEDS FROM THIS UNIT WILL BE DONATED TO COMMUNITY FIRST! VILLAGE IN AUSTIN, TX)
