Explaining to young students what it means to be a volunteer can be tricky but with some examples and maybe bringing in a volunteer worker from a local organization may help explain this topic. Being a volunteer is great if you have some spare time. There are many worthy charities and organizations to choose from. Some people help collect money for the Red Cross or Amnesty International. Others collect for orphans and widows in third world countries. Sometimes you may even volunteer to help raise funds for your local school, sport club, choir, church or youth group. Whatever you volunteer for, it is a noble deed to spend some of your time to help others and each other. Back to WORKSHEETS.
