The students started by writing opinion papers deciding if they should do a clothes drive. The majority of students had the opinion that the clothes drive was a good idea. Students made posters and displayed them throughout the building. They designed flyers that went home with all of the students at Martin City and they wrote announcements for the intercom. They also made commercials using I pads to promote their clothes drive. They placed boxes for collection throughout the building and checked them each day.
In one week, the class collected 36 bags of clothing that will be given to the Highgrove Early Childhood Center. Ms. Jaramillo’s students feel like they have accomplished something big and they are very excited to give the clothes they collected to the Early Childhood Center.
