Sample Learning Activities
Students explore the activities and values of local and international leaders by completing the Leaders' Values Mapping Activity.
Students call on Catholic Social Teaching, scripture, and the works of mercy to brainstorm and decide on what actions they are willing to take and/or invite others to take on the issue. One way to do this is to work through Section 3: Setting and implementing your challenges from the Be More Workbook. Actions might include an audit of the way the school 'wastes' resources such as water, paper and energy
