INTERMEDIATE & MIDDLE SCHOOL ACTIVITY
WHAT CAN YOU LEARN? WHAT CAN YOU DO?
As a number of businesses advice employees to work from home in the ongoing bid to curb the coronavirus pandemic, female education activist and Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai has asked all the students to send in some tips on how to be productive at home.
In her latest post on Instagram, Yousafzai said that she misses being outside and with friends. “I know a lot of students are missing school today — but you can still be productive and have fun at home! Go to my stories to see what I’ve been up to and tell me how you’re spending your time away from school.”
…..Yousafzai is the youngest Nobel Peace Prize winner in history (at 17), an education activist, the author of I Am Malala and founder of the Malala Fund. She is devoted to raising money for education programmes.
NOW LET’S GET TO NEXT STEPS!
Guiding questions for your reading, writing, thinking and acting:
- Read about Malala. Think and write about the differences in her life and in yours. What do you wish you could ask her? Then think and write about how you are similar. There are many ways, including that you are both home from school right now! What did you learn about yourself from this writing? Share what you learn in our comment section below or on social media #socialjusticelearnanddo.
- What does “have fun and be productive” while out of school mean for you? Time to make a plan. Maybe even a schedule. Be sure to include others in your plan. What can you do while out of school to speak up for or help those close or far? Share your action with us in our comment section below or on social media #socialjusticelearnanddo.
We look forward to hearing from you!
