If you are looking for projects that allow your students to take what they are learning about the aftermath of Japan’s  earthquake and transform learning into action, we recommend visiting the Students Rebuild website. This non-profit organization,  initially founded to help rebuild Haiti, is now partnering with to provide students with a worldwide way to help their Japanese peers: the Paper Cranes for Japan Project.

Thanks to foundation funding,  every origami paper crane students make can generate $2 towards Architecture for Humanity’s relief efforts. Visit the Students Rebuild site for more information.

If you and your students join the Paper Cranes for Japan project, please leave a comment and let us know. Be sure to include any lesson plans or resources you would recommend to other K-12 teachers.

As always, we moderate all comments, but will be checking this site often so that others can benefit from your insights.
