FutureFit Extension Activities

Create

(10-15 minutes, bulletin board or whiteboard, pre-cut apples, leaves or sticky notes):
Make a giving tree using the instructions found in “Make a Giving Tree” printable.

Serve

(10-15 minutes):
Express to students that philanthropy doesn’t always involve giving away money to help others. Many people choose to donate their time. Ask a teacher in a younger grade if your students can visit his or her classroom to help the younger students with an activity, or to read to a younger student. Or perhaps have your students help another teacher by volunteering to clean up the classroom or help prepare a lesson.
