Using Decision-making and Entrepreneurial Thinking
With one day until the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, we wanted to remind you to tune in to the virtual 24 hour live event that EarthDay.org is holding. This is just one of many things you can do to engage students at home with an appreciation of the beauty of nature!
More Activities for Home!
One of the best ways to engage students in caring for the environment is to learn about the diverse creatures on earth. One way to celebrate Earth Day indoors, is to use online resources to learn about nature. For example, check learn about some of these National Geographic cute animals who need your help.
While at home, there are also many live and recorded webcams that you can view to have students appreciate the unique creatures that we have on this planet. For example, check out the live Jelly Cam and visit the website at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. What else did you learn about jellyfish?
Now, check out the Audubon Puffin Burrow webcam below. Audubon has been helping to reintroduce these birds to the islands off Maine since the 1970's. Learn more about puffins at the Explore.org Live Cams.
Then conduct some research on puffins. Why did the Audubon society need to reintroduce these birds? What happened to them in the first place? What can we do to better protect species? Put on your entrepreneurial thinking cap. Use some of the resources on EarthDay.org to learn more about conservation of our many endangered species on earth.
Now, enjoy the bears at Katmai National Park, Alaska and check out more links to webcams at SierraClub.org.
