Students team up with Habitat for Humanity to celebrate World Habitat Day

RAPID CITY, S.D. ( KOTA TV) It's World Habitat Day and elementary students and Habitat for Humanity teamed up to make someone's day a little bit brighter.

Dozens of 4th graders at Pinedale Elementary are working on an art project called "What does home mean to me." The project aims to bring awareness to a person's right to live in an adequate living space.

For the project, the students decorate Jenga game pieces with drawings of their interpretation of home.

"It means almost everything. It's shelter, you have a home, you have all the rooms you need and it's just really nice," said 4th Grader Zane Voller.

"I drew my house and my treehouse and then I drew some clouds above it and then wrote family, safety and love,” said student Emma Henrichsen.

At the end of the year, each new Habitat homeowner will get a Jenga game made from the 4th graders at Pinedale Elementary.
