Product Description

In this unit students are asked to make it their mission to help the “New Hope Homeless Shelter” plan and prepare for its Thanksgiving feast. The main goal is to determine how much money is needed for the necessary Thanksgiving food items and then reach out to a “local” business in the form of a persuasive letter, asking for monetary donations to make the feast a success. Resources are given at the end of the unit (including picture books about homelessness) for you to reach out to homeless shelters in your community and make this project a reality!

Tasks Included in the Unit
