This is a 45-minute lesson that introduces students to the concept of the 'common good' while getting them moving around the classroom. Students support one another in finding hidden pennies which they can "cash in" for an incentive of your choice. A discussion then ensues about how the common good was promoted during the activity.
This is the perfect lesson to do before the launch of the a service learning project because it deepens understanding around the purpose of service.
A Powerpoint presentation, full lesson plan, and supporting handouts are all included in the package.
