World’s Largest Lesson

STEAM begins this week and we can’t wait to share some really big ideas with the students based on the United Nation’s Global Goals, which will be the umbrella under which we work this entire year! We will be teaching kids about the World’s Largest Lesson, inequality, and about being global citizens this week.

This week we will be doing a pasta challenge that highlights inequality, and will make students understand how it feels to have less than someone else by no fault of their own.  Students will be challenged to empathize and consider how it feels to suffer from inequality of resources, and contemplate what we can all do about it.

Ask your student what he or she learned about the Global Goals this week! I’d love to hear what they have to say!
