Activity Instructions

Kids write an essay describing how they can help others.

  1. Carmen helps others by donating the money she gets to charities whose missions she likes.
    • As a class, brainstorm some ways to help others. These may include sending someone a card, donating a meal to a hungry family, or volunteering to help younger children learn to read.
    • Use this activity to teach strategies for using a Spanish-English dictionary or translation software, and to have kids find the words and expressions they need to express themselves.
  2. Have kids write an essay about different ways they can help other people and why helping others is an important part of being a good citizen. Alternatively, have kids focus on one way of helping and explain how it benefits others and society as a whole.
