Environmental Issue Instruction
•During the Earth Day Celebration in 2012 Jessica Clark, Johns Hopkins University intern, did a lesson on recycling. Included in this presentation was the amount of time it takes for different items to decompose. The students loved it!
•During the National Arbor Day Celebration/Earth Day Celebration, the county provides seedlings for each student to plant at home.
•We study the travel and function of seeds and their parts. We study what the environment needs to provide for seeds to survive, and the impact of environmental changes on the success of seeds and plants.
•We travel to the Robinson Nature Center to study native plants, and experiment to find the elements of their success.
