The Problem

I am very passionate about conservation, and conservation education. I believe that it is vital to educate young children about conservation by making it fun and exciting so that children can reconnect to nature and its beauty and learn about ways to help our Earth.

Our Plan

I am starting a club through my umbrella school Clonlara, which encompasses a global community of students. I am making lesson plans, creating activities (such as reducing our fresh water usage), organizing the group, and meeting with the elementary students once a week on zoom for our club meeting. I am hoping to make this club fun and exciting so that the students can enjoy learning about the Earth and, by working together as a group, we can make a positive impact on the world.

Here is how the project went:

This project went really well! I thoroughly enjoyed preparing materials for the lesson each week, and looked forward to each zoom meeting with my students. It was an amazing experience to see my students so excited and enthusiastic to learn about conservation and complete various projects on their own throughout the weeks. We had many fantastic discussions about ways we can help save the Earth and all of its species. The students seemed to really enjoy the club. I think we all learned a lot, and hopefully made a positive impact on the world together.

Through this project I/we learned:

I learned so many things. Through teaching my students, I learned a lot about different ecosystems and species around the globe as I prepared the lessons each week, as well as different ways to make a positive impact on the world. I gained important skills such as confidence and leadership, and know that our impact grows when we work together as a team to save the Earth and all of its species.

What I/we might change:

If I run this club again, I plan to focus on how the students can apply what they've learned to their own communities.

My/our favorite part of this project was:

My favorite part of this project was seeing my students so enthusiastic to help the Earth - it was incredibly inspiring. I loved connecting with students from all over the world and hearing their different experiences with nature and conservation. I really enjoyed learning how to make a positive impact on the world together.

Some tips, tricks or fun facts about the project:

For young children, I found that making the learning fun and exciting is a great way to encourage participation and enthusiasm. We learned through videos, discussions, games, trivia, and projects, and the students seemed to really enjoy it.
