Online Resources for Developing an Awareness of Poverty
Fox, Kathy R.
Social Studies and the Young Learner, v21 n2 p32-33 Nov-Dec 2008
In the elementary school, poverty, hunger, and homelessness are most often discussed in terms of a canned food drive conducted during a holiday season, but there are other options for activities in which children can learn about poverty, and to do something about it. This article describes ways to develop students awareness of poverty. Some print and online resources that can be used by teachers to teach about poverty are also listed. (Contains 2 notes.)
