Child Hunger Ends Here is a free innovative project-based learning activity that engages middle and high school students (grades 7-12) in learning about and fighting child hunger.
Join the Fight Against Child Hunger: Easy as 1, 2, 3
A 10-step curriculum guides students through the process of fighting child hunger:
Initially it guides them in learning about child hunger and national hunger prevention efforts.
The class/group as a whole then engages in a child hunger-fighting initiative.
The class/group also organizes into teams of up to four to explore brand marketing.
With insights gained from this research, student teams create and execute their own cause marketing plan to engage their communities in a campaign to fight child hunger.
Enrolled classrooms/groups receive the USA TODAY electronic edition to conduct research and understand real-life examples of child hunger across the nation. Teachers/sponsoring adults receive comprehensive instructions to help them guide their students through the project.
