We are all connected: Wangari Maathai

Wangari Maathai was the first African woman to receive a Nobel Peace Prize. Of course, she was not the first African woman to deserve a Nobel Peace Prize but racism, colonialism, and sexism have long played into this award. Read about Maathai, a biologist and activist, and reflect on what Americans can learn about her work and apply to our own hemisphere.

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.

    How can this guiding principle show up in our school community on a regular basis?

    Having these principles is a way to show everyone is welcomed to the community. No matter if its school, a neighborhood, or even a place to eat.

    I think that Levi chose to end his book with the story of carbon because he said we were all made out of carbon and we are all Stardust, which shows that he thinks we are all alike, not matter who we choose to discriminate.

    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.

    Evan savian 1/06/2021 5:48 AM
    I would rather offset my Carbon Footprint. I would offset it because not only is it helping the environment, but it's helping the others around me as well. I think that that is a big deal if you look at the long run of humanity.

    I chose a picture of the Amazon Jungle. In the picture it was miles and miles of untouched fresh green canopy and thousands of birds and animals. I think that I chose this beautiful jungle is getting cut down everyday, and it's so sad because it's home to so many endangered animals!

    I would make a device that would cure Covid, or can suck all toxic diseases out of the air. I would love to make something that could save thousands of people everyday.

    What's one thing you can do in your daily life to slow down and appreciate our world--the people and the planet? How can you concentrate on doing more "good" instead of competing for "the best"? How has competing to be the best contributed to human impact on the environment?

    I think that Competing to be the best somewhat has to with Businesses and Companies, etc... I think that the more jealousy the word contains the more energy gets taken up.

    A special place In my heart is my old house. It was the house I grew up in, and I loved it and I was super sad when my parents said we were moving. The house was beautiful, But it was harder leaving my neighbors and friends who had helped me get to the place I am in right now.

    What does it mean to be able to vote? Should the voting age be lowered to 16?

    Evan savian's avatar
    Evan savian 10/21/2020 6:01 AM
    Being able to vote meant being a lot of things back in the 1800's or even farther back. Back then, You could only vote if you were a white man who owned property. But now, Women can vote, if you are African American you can vote, many more people can vote now. Though some people prefer not to vote, which I think is crazy. I think that if people could vote at 16, there would be many more votes. But you aren't legally an adult yet, so you would still be a kid so I'm not sure if that is the best decision right now for our country.
