Connect with students from across the country by participating in our Peace Crane Project grab and go activity!
“The Peace Crane Project invites every student on the planet to fold an origami crane, write a message of peace on its wings, then exchange it with another student somewhere in the world. The Project builds friendships, strengthens hand-eye coordination and writing skills, teaches geography, exposes students to new languages and cultures, and EMPOWERS YOUTH to make a difference in their community, country, and world.” - The Peace Crane Project
We’ll be exchanging our Peace Cranes with a student group from Round Hill, Virginia!
