JKHA First and Fifth Grades Will Plant 100 Trees in Israel

First and fifth graders came together for a very special cause that began on Tu B’Shevat. The learning began with a unit on trees in general and Judaic studies in the first grade classrooms. The students explored the importance of trees and realized that they could work together to raise money and plant trees in Israel. The students collected ideas and generated advertisements encouraging people to fill the their blue boxes from Jewish National Fund (JNF) so they could plant trees. The fifth grade math classes decided that they would handle the finances and computations. Recently both grades put all of the money together and the first graders and fifth graders met to count all of the change and dollars. It took time to add up, but in total, the classes raised close to $700 and will be planting over 100 trees in Israel! The students are so excited to have their very own JKHA forest in Israel.
