What lessons are taught through the KidKnits curriculum?
Our custom curricula offer comprehensive service-learning lessons. Students use a hands-on approach to experience concepts on world poverty, empathy, community activism, geography, and leadership. Our in-school curriculum is aligned with Specific Common Core educational standards. Our after-school curriculum enables classes with more time to dive more deeply into the KidKnits principles with fun and engaging activities. Both curricula include videos, detailed lesson plans, and student printables. Students are transformed as they identify with the women and families working with KidKnits and experience the power of service in their own lives.
A Unique, Hands-on, Service-learning opportunity for your school or youth group.
KidKnits was founded by a nine-year old knitter, Ellie, who believed that “You’re never too young to change a life on the other side of the world. Through the fair trade import of handspun yarn from women living and working in poverty in developing countries, KidKnits offers a simple craft kit for a student that is integrated with a comprehensive service learning curriculum. KidKnits is dedicated to two separate, yet uniquely connected goals. The first is to support dignity and sustainable employment for vulnerable families living in poverty in developing countries. The second is to honor our founder’s belief and inspire youth to help change lives around the world.
