YEAR 7: BIG SIX PROJECT GROUPS
How can we bring light to those who need it?
In this project, Year 7 Big Six students worked as philanthropists, looking at the essential question ‘How can we bring light to those who need it?’ Students first familiarised themselves with www.lanternprojects.org, an organisation which promotes small projects around the world which have a big impact on people’s lives. The students chose a cause to work for over the course of the project, researching the country and the possible impact their support could have. They then honed their mathematical skills, then applied these, creating physical lanterns from dowel and tissue paper. They organised events to help raise awareness and funds, culminating in a ‘Night Walk’ and a video link interview with Gail Uilkema, the woman who founded Lantern Projects.
