Come along on a journey with second graders who were motivated to help others halfway across the world! Inspired by a children’s book, these students creatively brainstorm and collaborate to provide clean drinking water for people in Africa. In this article, recent Spotlight Award recipient K. Michelle Lewis explains how to use a project-based learning model to empower students to explore both music and solve real-world concerns, and how to align such a project to the National Core Arts Standards.
