“That’s Not Fair!” The Second Grade Change Maker Curriculum

The seven and eight-year-olds in our second grade classrooms are developmentally inclined to care deeply about fairness.  They have a clarity of conviction around issues of equality that is often inspiring.  The newly developed Change Maker curriculum taps into their emerging concept of justice, as we learn about individuals and groups who have contributed to social change.  We study people who worked for specific causes across decades, particularly focusing on non-violent activism.
