The Problem

Our third phase of Small changes once again involves raising the mindfulness of students to the interdependence of humans, environment and animals. Our wish is to help support 21st century global learners. That is to empower students to believe that their "small changes" will add to larger differences for our future.

Our Plan

Our group is skyping with the animal shelter and contributing toys and needs to the shelter. Some students are writing inquiry pieces sharing their ideas about the significance of adopting a sheltered animal. Within the community their is a home for elderly people who through empathy and kindness share knowledge and good times together. Our class will be visited by its members to learn of the challegenes of aging and reaching out with time and caring. Students are growing seedlings for the home to plant flowers for Mother's Day. On April 5th we will share in the Jane Goodall Bday webinair and learn more of her work, Finally we are writing letters and presenting to the board of education developing an action plan. WHAT MORE CAN WE DO how acan we add a following ? We are seeking to purchase a rycle container and contribute to a community need. WE alsosupported a field trip of cultural awareness.
