This past Unit of Inquiry was about organizations. The point of the unit was to help us make a difference by helping charities. The central idea was: being organized empowers us to take action more effectively. Before we started a project that is explained below we researched all the charities that 5A would be representing.
This past month I have been working on a product for the charity: Box of Hope and it will be put on the website of the company Twopresents the product is a thanks for coming card (pictured above as the featured image). It has info about Box of Hope and what they do.
Let’s talk about the gifts (skills) that I have that impacted the way my group performed this is of course in a positive way. One gift is being a good writer so I know grammar, spelling and sentence structure well. Another is that I am a good listener and listen to others ideas because they could be better than mine or can add on to mine. And the final gift is I am a good speaker and that involves being persuasive
Now let’s talk about what leadership impacted my group. The type of leader I think I am is a visionary. Because I had a vision and I told the others that vision and they tried to and follow it and well it kind of worked out because it came really close to the vision. My vision was not too much information and had lots of pictures. Though in my vision the card was originally an invite someone’s party.
Let’s talk about what we learned, we learned a lot about Box of Hope and TwoPresents because of all the research we did. We learned that Box of Hope collects its boxes in November. We learned TwoPresents has a whole section of cards made by kids. We also learnt that the mission statement of TwoPresents is to reduce waste and raise money for charities in the form of a payment 50% of the money goes to a gift for you or the person’s whose party it is and 50% of the money goes to charity, hence the name TwoPresents, because one present is your present and the other is the money that goes to charity.
