THIS WEEK

We’re thinking about

the question: 

“How can we support and encourage our community during difficult times?”

Your challenge this week is to design and perform an “Uplifting Action” to support and encourage your community.

Let's Get Started!

You’ve already created your “Action Plan” that describes your “Uplifting Action.”

When someone sees your plan, they should see:

 

  • You are using a passion (what you love) and a skill (what you're good at) to do something that encourages and brings joy to your community based on what they need

  • It’s possible to carry out your plan

  • A sketch that shows what your action will be, look like, or do

Look at this student’s “Action Plan”:

  • Is this person doing something they love in a way that brings joy to someone else?

  • Will this person be able to do this safely with the materials they have?

  • Does the sketch show the action they want to do?

Your challenge this week: Design and perform an “Uplifting Action” to support and encourage your community. 


Today, you will explore your “Action Plan” to check if you are meeting your goal.

Pencils down! This is a thinking exercise!

 

Look at your “Action Plan” and ask:

 

  • Are you doing something you love in a way that brings joy to someone else?

  • Will you be able to do this safely with the materials you have?

  • Does your sketch show the action you want to do?

Wait, still don’t touch your work! First, complete one of these sentences on a separate piece of paper or directly on your “Action Plan”:

 

  • I will add…

  • I will try…

  • I will adjust…

Now, make the changes you explained above on your “Action Plan.”

Be sure to save your “Action Plan” so you can use it to guide you when you perform your “Uplifting Action.”

Ready for Day 4?

On day 4, you will perform your “Uplifting Action.”
