Grade 5 Social Justice Project

Project - crocheting blankets and hats for those in need

We met with all of the grade five students to discuss ideas for our social justice project. This year, we are going to make a difference by using our time to create items for other people. We decided that we are going to crochet blankets and hats for babies and/or children in hospitals or shelters.

Last Wednesday, the classes got to work. Learning the basic stitches and exploring how to work with the yarn and crochet hooks. It was a fantastic start! We will post updates of our creations.

How can you support? If you would like to make a donation to our class, we are collecting 100% acrylic yarn. This is soft for babies and is non-allergenic. If you know how to crochet and would like to come into our class to be an "expert" we would greatly appreciate your help!
