We are a group of first and second graders living in Tel Aviv and attending an after-school English program. We are learning about Dr. Jane Goodall and were excited to find out about the roots & shoots program! After studying our neighborhood we realized that many people around us don't know how important nature is! We live in a big city and and are lucky to have beautiful parks and beaches close by, but sometimes the air is dirty, people don't always recycle, and trees and plants aren't always appreciated. We want our project to help people appreciate, love and enjoy nature! We are working on an educational campaign and are excited to begin our project!
I am proposing to initiate dialogue on promoting air pollution prevention--this project will dovetail with the soon-to-be started 'Envision Chaffee County' project. By creating a air quality stakeholders group, we will be able to contribute to the comprehensive environmental health discussion, but focus on specifics that include: a current inventory of stationary sources (asphalt batch plants, gravel pits, cement kilns, industrial air pollutants), mobile sources (including vehicle emissions), natural sources (fugitive dust, wildfires) and related air pollutants. We will enhance this inventory with meteorologic data, wind direction & temp data.
Students will conduct a sustainability audit of a local organization, undergo research and present recommendations on how to reduce the organization’s environmental impact. Students Will Be Able To: -Clearly explain sustainable solutions related to water, waste, energy and food, including how to approach them, why to approach them and the benefits of the practices. -Critically evaluate an organization's practices. -Compare and contrast organizational practices based on standard practices, best practices and what is needed to achieve a sustainable business economy. -Apply prior knowledge of environmental themes to create tangible recommendations. -Compile a written report with various courses of action, including references, photos and evidence. -Present their research to an authentic audience and follow up with the organization to record their impact.
This project will allow my students to engage with data to understand weather phenomena. In understanding weather, my students will have a greater understanding of seasonal changes, climate zones, and climate change.
Out project will allow people who would normally not be able to see in great detail different stars or constellations have that opportunity. We will do this by having a few ipass with an app that shows the different constellations and where they are located in the sky. We will also have the Lacrosse Area Astrology group come and talk about the telescopes and teach people the basics of how to operate a telescope.
From 2017 to 2020, I will start from their own, to protect the environment, love flowers and plants, when the new year does not set off fireworks and firecrackers, to remind the people around, join hands to build a better home.
Our project will reduce air, soil, and water pollution by raising awareness of the costs financially and to our health over time.
Our KYE-YAC Roots & Shoots group joined with the Sister City Foundation to participate in a local Peace Day celebration called Seeds of Peace.
