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!

    I would say my cottage in northern Quebec helped me to become who I am because it helped me to feel more of a connection with the earth and my family. The way the cottage works is there is woodland, one small cabin, and a path to another small cabin. Some of our favorite activities include going for walks in the woods, swimming in the beautiful lake below the cottage, playing a board game from the 1950's called careers, rowing the boat, playing in general with my Nana, and playing with my five cousins (once removed) when they come. It also helped me to spend quality time with grandpee before he died. Here is a picture of my grandpee my Nana my Sister and I:

    The Lenapes have been around for over 10,000 years that is insane!
    And we thought 5000 year old Mesopotamia was an "ancient civilization.'

    I would ask Sir David how we actually protect the earth.
    I would ask him about which groups people should donate to/join.
    I would ask him "From personal experience, what animals and regions are doing the worst and how do we help them?"
