I'm currently working on a service learning project for a grade 7 class. Service learning is defined as a form of project based learning in which academic goals are accomplished through community service. If you're going to teach about chesed, you have to do chesed. In Jewish talk, Service Learning is Avraham Avinu personified. Be a doer. Talk is cheap. For teachers considering such projects, I came across a great site on service learning called www.goodcharacter.com.
