Why I like to protect the Environment

Why I like to protect the Environment | Education for All | Scoop.it

Chaa Creek's Children’s Summer Camp Scholarship Program is held annually, and the camp gives 24 Belizean youth between the ages of 8 and 13 a chance to learn about their natural world through a mix of adventure, social interaction, fun and hands-on education aimed at instilling a sense of wonder, and responsibility for the environment.  There is still plenty of time for kids to submit their 300 word essay for this Summer's camp.  Here's the latest essay, submitted by Bianca Narvaez.  Good luck!

Using satellite images, young students learn about human impact on environment

Using satellite images, young students learn about human impact on environment | Education for All | Scoop.it

With the help of satellite images fifth and sixth grade students at Mr. Tim Blum’s geography class at the University of Wyoming Lab School got a birds-eye view of how humans have impacted or modified their environments. Images acquired by satellites decades apart showed cleared forests, irrigated crop fields in the middle of the deserts, altered landscapes (new roads and water bodies), and urban growth.

 

SD: Geospatial technologies can sound daunting for teachers that don't feel that they are specialists. Yet there are simple ways to make sophisticated technologies very relevant to just about any grade level as this article demonstrates.
