Environmental Themes

Students are our future leaders and innovators. This website is a free resource for teachers & parents to help inspire them to practice research and writing while learning about important environmental issue. You may send us articles, artwork, or pictures/videos of projects. We’d LOVE to publish your classwork online so other students around the world may also be inspired!

Solar is an adjective that means something is soaking in energy from the sun (solar panels, solar power, etc.). Energy from the sun helps plants grow and powers the water cycle. All food chains begin with energy, and that energy is passed throughout every living organism. When we are outside in the sun, its warm rays boost our immune system, kill bad bacteria and stimulate production of vitamin D.

We can use renewable energy (or green energy) from the sun as a free source of power! Unfortunately, the majority of people in the world use power that harms the environment (gas, oil, etc.). You can be involved in the clean energy movement by educating people about alternative sources of power.

It’s no mystery that temperatures in different climates around our world are increasing. There are many reasons why our Earth keeps getting hotter. As you learn about Climate Change, you will discover examples of “greenhouse gases.” There is one greenhouse gas that is a HUGE trouble maker! Carbon Dioxide gas (CO2) is dense – which means the atoms/molecules inside CO2 are tightly packed together. The CO2 in our atmosphere is like a thick heavy blanket around our world trapping in the heat from the sun.

Engineers and Scientists are working together to create ways to make our world cooler. We can use solar power instead of fossil fuels that create greenhouse gases. There are also some COOL inventions that take Carbon Dioxide out of the air.

Water is a precious resource that gets “recycled” as it travels through the water cycle. In school, we learn about the role water plays when we experience different forms of weather. Water changes state as it turned into solids, liquids and gases. Since our bodies are 75% water, staying hydrated every day is vital to our heath. We also need water to grow edible gardens, sustain forests and keep plants growing.

When we do not take care of our environment, the water cycle does not run properly. There are places in the world where the water is contaminated or poisoned. When water is polluted, that pollution goes into the ocean, the air and the soil. With your help, we can spread the word about water conservation!

Fruits and veggies are first grown on a farm before they reach our stores. While farming, it’s possible to waste a lot of water, pollute the air or add too many chemicals to the soil. Sustainable farming is responsible farming. When farmers focus on sustainable farming, they use tricks or techniques, to help protect the land, air, animals and people who live on and around the farm. The BEST sustainable farming inventions are created when farmers understand how to use Science, Technology and Math!

You may practice sustainable farming experiments at home or in school by growing food on your own. It’s important to research what your seeds need to grow into healthy plants. Fruits, vegetables and herbs are delicious when you growth them on your own.
