Quote from the Teacher: "The kids have gotten really excited about ways that they could help these animals... Charity Checks was a great learning experience for my students. "

Overview: Fourth grade teacher Alison Garfield used Charity Checks as a followup to her class' unit on Endangered Animals. The students had already studied endangered animals and written a persuasive letter trying to convince a fellow student, parent or lawmaker to donate money, time or pass a law to help endangered animals. In the Charity Checks unit, Ms. Garfield's students found a charity that would best support the animal they wrote about.
