Fred Lynn Middle School students standing in a classroom with the text: From Kids to Kids

In Jonathan Alsheimer's seventh grade history classes at Fred M. Lynn Middle School, the industrialization curriculum is paired with a group project requiring students to create a mock business. However, reflecting on a personal experience inspired Alsheimer to make a change to the project this school year. Students instead created a mock nonprofit organization. The lessons from the activity were then used when the students, Alsheimer, and Thomas Annunziata, a math teacher at Fred Lynn Middle, created From Kids to Kids, a nonprofit project that solicits donations to make gift boxes for children.
