This project based learning activity has been created to cover the important topic of compassion. Compassion is an important characteristic for each person to possess; however, not every person knows how to be compassionate. Students will explore the concept of compassion through the reading of To Kill a Mockingbird and outside resources. Students will participate in a volunteer project with their group members. Students will also create a product that will help them teach the idea of compassion, and its importance, to first and second grade students at a local elementary school.
