Dollar Difference Activity

I am always looking for more ways to integrate kindness, caring and love into my curriculum. Now that the first quarter (where this is the main focus) is over, I have been on the lookout for what awesome things other teachers are doing.

Last week, I saw a post by a friend on Facebook. Students were given a dollar and asked to go out and make a difference. I was so excited by this idea and just had to do it!

The following Monday, I presented this idea to my students. They were giddy with excitement at all the possibilities. Today, they reported back what they had done. Below is a video we made to help spread the word and hope that others will also join in on Making a Difference with a Dollar.


  1. What a fantastic idea and neat video! Did you give your students a paper that explained the activity?

    1. Hi Ursula,

      I did not give them a paper explaining the activity. I just presented the idea to them when I gave them the dollar. The paper you see in the video is a sheet where they have to explain what they did and draw or paste a picture.
