Students earn PE credit from doing chores for elders and those with disabilities in their community

Kindness is something that can definitely be taught to students. This school made sure to find a way to encourage students in learning the real value of helping others.

Alternative Learning Center in Iowa is a school for junior high and high school students who are at risk of dropping out. To allow students to work for their grades in creative ways, the school allows them to choose from a wide variety of activities for their physical education subject.

It is legally allowed because it is added to the curriculum and they only allow it in the last two weeks of school.

One of the many options is to do yard work for people who are old or have disabilities.

Social studies teacher, Tim Hizler came up with the idea a few years ago. While the activity helps students earn better grades and credit, it also helps the community, people who no longer can do a particular task, be able to get a task they can no longer do to be done.
