Together we CAN make a difference!
Service learning is a huge part of what we do here at Go2Science. What greater purpose is there for learning than to do good in your local or even global community?
Two amazing teachers I know, Alex Harper and Koen Timmers, have teamed up for an incredible project that dovetails beautifully into service learning for Mission: Tigers! Their project is #PlantED. Their goal is to plant 1,000,000 trees by October 2019. If you can't plant a tree right now, sign up anyway and pledge to plant one when the weather is right.
You can pledge to plant by signing up here: http://plant-ed.net/#joinin
Take it further by creating a wishing tree: http://plant-ed.net/wishing-tree
They've even curated some additional resources and tips for you here: http://plant-ed.net/childhood. Be sure to check the links to books. They've compiled quite a collection!
