Happy habitats make happy animals and happy people! We are all connected and our actions in the world affect humans, animals, and plants everywhere. By protecting habitats, we're protecting wildlife- and our own lives! Students in this fun and engaging, hands-on class will explore interesting information about the threats to different habitats around the world and to the animals that live there. Stories, exciting art and thought-provoking projects, like "Earthy Art Message Mandalas", will spark curiosity while students become aware of some of the major threats, like pollution, that are specifically impacting these natural environments and all creatures who live there. Students will dive into information about how human settlement, life style choices and deforestation has contributed to habitat destruction and threatens everything that lives there. Students will also develop a deeper understanding of the greenhouse effect and human influences on the Earth's climate. Students will then use their crazy creative problem-solving skills, become habitat defenders, and be in action, working together on solutions in a positive and powerful way. Projects also include "Mindful Mobiles", garbage science, planting experiment, dioramas, art posters and card sets. Look out world - Here they come!
