Part 1 begins with a class discussion on the current realities of poverty. Students then create a collage which they compare to the one they made in the first lesson, thereby seeing how their views have changed.
In Part 2 you can have groups of students discuss how certain projects would alleviate poverty, select a particularly effective option, and present it to the class.

A sheet that details what students can do to alleviate poverty and several examples of grassroots projects are included.
