Main Objectives of the Project:
· To increase the students’ global awareness regarding human needs, social justice, economics, and the environment
· To nurture the students’ empathic imaginations
· To instill a sense of empowerment and social responsibility
· To engage students in the application of math concepts such as interpreting charts, and to expose them to business concepts such as expenses, gross sales, and profit
Chocolate, Charities, Choice, and Charts is a service-learning project.
Third grade students learn about the economic, social, and environmental problems associated with chocolate production, and they learn how Fair Trade addresses these problems.
The students promote the sale of Fair Trade chocolate by making posters, and they publicly announce and explain the project to the school.
The students sell Fair Trade certified chocolate to generate money to donate to charities. During this selling period, the students learn about five charitable organizations that focus on five different areas of need: education, medical care, disaster relief, hunger, and shelter.
When the selling is complete, the students vote to decide how they want to direct their money to the charities—each student has ten votes which they may allot in any manner they choose. These votes are entered into an Excel spreadsheet which is projected for the students to view. As the votes are entered, the students watch a pie chart generated by Excel that displays the changing percentages allotted to each charity, and they can also see the changing dollar amounts. This continues until all votes are entered and the final amounts to be donated are established.
"Working at the Food Bank empowers students to realize they can make a difference in their community."

|McVeigh had to have been carefully taught to hate the government. Negative indoctrination finds fertile ground on trouble souls. The company he kept and the actions he endured created what he became, he had heavy rocks in his backpack of life. We need to take those rocks away with acts of kindness, service, compassion, and honor...The Oklahoma Standard! C.C.|
