Operation Christmas Child... Love in a Shoebox

Operation Christmas Child - Love in a Box is our new project for Christmas this year.  With a theme of giving in our classrooms we are doing this project in lieu of a class gift. 
Each year people pack shoebox gifts to bless children in need around the world through a program called Operation Christmas Child.  This year Mrs. Leach, Mrs. Livingston, Mrs. Miller, Mrs. Zimba, Mrs. Zimmerman and 7th Grade teacher Mrs. Schuler are teaming together to pack boxes with the help of our amazing students.  We are incorporating Problem Based Learning, Technology, Philanthropy, and Arts to make an impactful STEAM learning opportunity for our students.

Did you know?
·         Each box will have a tracking bar so students will be able to watch as their box travels to its destination.
·         We are hoping to be able to do some FaceTime experiences  with local volunteers who will be helping to pack the airplanes.

·         You can learn more information here:
Students watched the informational video created by Julie: 

Students formed groups and completed the design sheet:

We sent out a Google Form to parents so they could ask questions, leave comments and choose if they wanted to have their child do their own box or work in a small group.

We are so thankful for hearts thats truly care... 

What an amazing opportunity to be part of.  The participation from students, parents, coworkers and community members was truly a blessing.  Our starting goal was 10 boxes, we ended with 79 boxes filled!  That means 79 kids across seas will be getting a cute, red shoebox filled with love!
