Product Description
Send out the gift of gratitude and kindness in your leadership, student council, social studies, or ELA class with this thank you letter writing project. Start with a school-wide thank you note card flash mob and end with researching a never-met-before hero to offer a letter of appreciation for their contributions to this world.

This complete kit comes with 12 blank secondary-friendly card designs, project sheets, templates, samples, and rubrics.

Supplemental activities to introduce and round out this project incorporate the children’s book "Have You Filled a Bucket Today" and "An Awesome Book of Thanks", as well as an inspiring TED Talk on the small acts of leadership with included debrief questions.

************************************

Greatness is taking the time to express one’s gratitude for others.

No better way to learn about leadership than to do it! The is a great no-prep 3-part project to keep on hand for those slower points of the year between larger student council projects or right before a holiday break. Each part can be done in isolation, spaced out as far or as close together as you’d like! Or complete all three steps at once for a 2-week campaign to spread kindness.

Project segments
- Whole school thank you note flash mob to make the day of every single student at your school
- Long overdue thank you to send gratitude for a long-ago gesture by an old friend or family member
- Out of the blue thank you to extend appreciation to a never-met living hero

This works great in the fall to spread a warm welcome of kindness, in the winter to express gratitude, or in the spring to bring closure to the year!

Included in this complete project kit:
- Teacher overview with 4 pages of detailed step-by-step lesson plans
- Student 3-Part Project Overview and brainstorm/research sheet
- Stand-alone Long Overdue Thank You Note overview, sample, and rubric sheets (CCSS and generic)
- Stand-alone Out of the Blue Thank You Note overview, sample, and rubric sheets (CCSS and generic)
- Universal Thank You Note overview, samples, and rubric sheets (CCSS and generic) for formally teaching the art of written appreciation anytime!

Additionally
- 16-slide EDITABLE PowerPoint with links and debrief questions for supplemental children books and TED Talk to introduce each project segment more deeply
- 6 fold-over and 6 single-sided 4.25 x 5.5-inch note cards in a variety of middle and high school appropriate designs (all come in color and B&W)

Writing PBL Project: Thank You Note Card or Letter

************************************

Tips from my Classroom:
I save this project for the couple of weeks of downtime we have between Homecoming wrapping up and the start of winter season activities. Every year, the whole student body is excited to get their thank you cards, and I see them poking out of binders and backpacks for weeks afterward! This also sets up great practice for the rest of the year in writing thank you cards, which we do a lot of in our Leadership class!
