ACTIVITIES FOR REFLECTION

No matter what grade level your students are at, there are many reflection activities they can participate in. These things can be done as a group or individually. Here are some ideas for reflection activities that can occur during and after the service part of a Service Learning project:

Doing
Present a Service Fair.
Make a video or slide show.
Draw a picture.
Paint a mural.
Create a collage.
Make a scrapbook.
Perform a skit or play.

Writing
Write a personal journal.
Write a group journal.
Write a news article for a local newspaper or the school newsletter.
Write thank you notes to all who were involved in the project.
Write a paper about the community need that was addressed through the project.

Telling
Have informal discussions.
Invite community partners and agencies to hear about the service completed.
Make an aural presentation to the PTA.

Reading
Read stories or books about service and relate them to the service work.
