How do you inspire children to show compassion and caring for others in need?

Helping to prepare Wonder 537: What Do You Hunger For? made me think about the many children who must focus on getting their basic needs met rather than being engaged and focused on learning. They are tired, hungry, unbathed, or worried about their families and wondering where they will be that day or evening.


Although we are considered a nation of great wealth,  unfortunately, many American children -- maybe some in your classroom or at your school -- are too busy facing these serious challenges to become engaged in classroom learning.


Concern is one thing but how do you help children act on compassion by caring for others in need—maybe within their own school and community?
