Native Land and Practices Acknowledgement

Native Land Acknowledgement means to learn about, talk about, and show respect for the Native inhabitants of an area of land. We do this for many reasons: to correct history, protect and preserve the culture and identity of native peoples, acknowledge the role of European colonization in the loss of native lives and lands. For this activity, read about the Lenape. The tribe indigenous to Brooklyn, Queens , and Manhattan. Who are they, what was NYC like before colonization? How can we honor the Lenape today?

Climate Change and Wildfires: How is climate change affecting you? Our hometown? And what can we do now?

First, the article about the CA wildfires and climate change. Climate Change In Your Hometown The featured article discusses the connection between climate change and California wildfires. Another Times article, from 2018, lets you track how the number of days when temperatures hit 90 degrees Fahrenheit (32 degrees Celsius) or higher changes in your hometown over your lifetime. As you look at the graph created based on your hometown and the year you were born, what do you notice? (If you want, try entering the birth year of your parents or grandparents as well.) Then, scroll to see the climate predictions for your hometown when you are 80 years old. Continue to scroll to learn more about these predictions, and then see how your hometown compares to other parts of the country and the world using the interactive globe.

Become a certified Climate Ambassador!

The Climate Museum in NYC is working with local teens to form a Climate Volunteer Coalition! The first step is to educate yourself on the main talking points around climate change. Next, share your knowledge! To help you do this, the Climate Museum has produced a pocket-sized "Climate Ambassador" card. Read the instructions, print the card, cut/fold, and start talking to the people! If you don't have a printer--make your own! https://climatemuseum.org/ambassador **With parent permission** You can also sign up on the Climate Museum website for more info. You can even post a reflection that the Museum will publish on their website for all to see!

    Carbon is so important to life, a lot of people think carbon is bad, but without carbon we would be stardust
  • Reflection Question
    Electricity Carbon Footprint Calculator
    What can you do to either lower your carbon footprint OR "offset your carbon footprint. When you "offset" you basically pay it forward---you do something kind for the environment or another person to balance out your carbon use if you can't reduce it.

    I can lower my carbon footprint by being more mindful of how I travel and biking and walking to places more instead of driving or taking the bus. I can also start to inform OTHER people about their carbon footprint and get THEM to reduce their carbon footprint as well.

    I can plant trees and other plants and protect nature. I can not care about what other people do, just do it no matter what people say is right or wrong. competing to be the best contributed to human impact on the environment. Competing to be the best contributed to human impact on the environment because e all wanted everything, but if we worked together, it might have gone better.

    I am worried that the fire will impact California's nature because California has a lot of amazing animals. I am kind of worried about the people living there and the animals living there because a lot of people have to evacuate their homes and go to somewhere safe. what if in the future, there are wildfires in way more places because of climate change?

    You can compost, you can use less meat, buy in bulk, reuse the seeds from peppers and other vegetables, and recycle cans that we use from beans and other things.
  • Reflection Question
    Action Track: Justice for the Whole Community Voting Rights
    What does it mean to be able to vote? Should the voting age be lowered to 16?

    Namu Jung's avatar
    Namu Jung 10/28/2020 5:52 AM
    To vote means to have a responsibility to your country. It means to know whoever gets elected that YOU had a say in it. it makes you sure that you tried your best. Yes I think the voting age should be lowered to 16 because 16 year olds have learned a lot in school from elementary to high school and I think they can be responsible with their life. And also they will learn to be responsible about their choices because voting is a big thing to decide on.

    Since I was 7, I went to Cape Cod, and every year I loved I more and more. That I where I really learned to surf and where I really loved nature most. We would eat ice cream 3-4 days a week and it was like heaven to me. We always lived in a house near a beach or pond and there was always a hammock in are yard. I had a friend named Romy that I had known since I was 1 and her family showed us Cape Cod and I loved it ever since.

    I stand on Leanne Lenape land. The Leanne Lenape Tribe took care of the land by growing plants and making nature sacred. I promise to preserve the story and culture of the Leanne Lenape people by growing more plants and not being careless, because I know that nature is the most important thing in this world.
