Cookie Homework: Evaluate: Choose one of the following writing prompt to summarize the importance of land and organism conservation. Prompt 1: It is estimated that we are losing 137 plant, animal and insect species every day due to the deforestation of rainforests.
That means we are losing over 50,000 species every year. The reasonthe land is being cleared is for the timber, for mining operations and to provide grazing areas for large scale cattle ranching. What do you think can or should be done to stop the deforestation? Prompt 2: A tract of land is being sold in your community. Fictitious bidders include the National Park Service, a children’s hospital, a shopping-mall developer, an oil drilling company, and the U.S.Armed Forces.

Link: Guiding Questions: 1.What other issues can water have besides too much lead? 2.How does the treatment process address issues with the water quality?
Homework: Use the following writing prompt to summarize the importance of water and organism conservation. Prompts: Water is life. There is the same amount of water now on Earth as when it was first created. For us,it’s easy.
We turn on the tap and there it is. Yet in Africa and Asia, women and children spend about 6 hours a day and walk an average of 3.7 miles a day just to collect water, according to water.org. This is time they could be spending in school or caring for their families. Think of five ways you and your family could conserve water so that everyone can do their part.

Rubrics forAssessment: Be a Volunteer Health Worker: Students choose an activity from the list below.
Groups may be needed for some activities. Create a Skit: Your skit will be used to teach a group of adults about germs and the importance of hand washing. The tricky part is that not everyone speaks or understands English in a lot of countries. So you have to use pantomime or other ways of communicating beyond words. Create a Pamphlet: In some places people still don't know how to read but they still have to learn about disease.
One way that is used to teach people is pamphlets with lots of pictures. Create a pamphlet that can be used anywhere in the world to show people how and when to wash their hands. Write a Song: Children learn new languages a lot easier than adults so in some places the children know more English than their parents. Write an original song for children that teaches them how to properly wash their hands. Design Your Own Tippy Tap: We've seen people use all sorts of things - like a hollowed out gourd with a pen casing - to create tippy taps from whatever materials they have available. Using only materials in the classroom and/or your home, design your own tippy tap. We will be installing it on the roof; to be used by those working in the garden.
