TRUSSVILLE — A second-grade class at Magnolia Elementary School raised over $150 to help a family in need this Christmas.
Mrs. Gamble’s class held a virtual yard sale in the style of Amazon. It was called “Gamblezon” and it was more than a charity.
“This cross-curricular activity met standards in math, social studies, and character education,” said teacher Gina Gamble.
Each student made a slide show of their items for sale. Two other classes, Mrs. Durham’s class and Ms. Wolfe’s class, then shopped the online sale.
“Gamblezon workers had to check their emails for sales, then mark their slideshow items as sold,” Gamble explained. “Next, the students had to ‘package’ the sale items and ‘deliver’ them to school for touch-free delivery.”
