A 6th Grader’s Take on Trash

Republishing this post to get new readers to our 6th grade blog.

Trash in the Ocean

Here’s what one 6th grader has to say about trash:

Trash

Her thoughts are typical and they make sense. Yet how many people still toss trash out their car windows or decide to drop their trash on the ground instead of holding it until they are near a garbage can? And how many of you pick up trash you see laying around?

This is the sixth post in a series that I’m sharing. My 6th graders had the idea to start this blog and I’m sharing in the hopes that they can see their ideas spread. I hope that my small town students can find their voice in this huge world. Social media has the power to do that.

6th Grader Questions Water Pollution

Republishing this post to get new readers to our 6th grade blog!

WaterAnd I don’t blame him. I think every single person on this planet will agree that clean water is better than polluted water, and that we should take care of our water, and yet we have polluted so much of our water. I know it’s complicated but our kids don’t always accept that. And you know what, they’re kids, I don’t want them to accept that as an answer!

So click on the graphic or click here to read what this 6th grader has to say about water pollution.

This is the fifth in a series of posts where I share something my 6th grade Science students came up with, an idea for sharing their thoughts and questions about the problems facing our Earth. It’s their blog where they get to ask questions and come up with ideas for saving their world.

So give his blog post a read, leave a comment or share his post if you can! Thank you!

A 6th Grader Blogs About Racism

Republishing these posts to get new readers to my students’ class blog to inspire this new group to write posts!

I do like to keep reminding myself that we’re not born racist. That could bring me down, thinking that people are still passing their racism along to their children but instead I like to think of it this way; maybe it’s not too late to teach someone that racism doesn’t have to be.

This is the fourth in a series of posts where I share something my 6th grade Science students came up with, an idea for sharing their thoughts and questions about the problems facing our Earth. Unlike the previous posts, this one doesn’t deal with what people are doing to the Earth but rather how people are treating other people. It’s all connected isn’t it? This post so far has gotten the most reads on our new World Solutions blog.

When this 6th grader shared her idea for a post for our new World Solutions blog, she wanted to write about racism. Like many she’s been deeply disturbed by what she is seeing on television. Here’s her post on:

Racism

Give it a read and if you can, leave a comment or at least share her post with your PLN or social network.

Thank you!

The World Needs Change

Republishing these posts to get new readers to my students’ class blog to inspire this new group to write posts!

6674601135_07bba0645f_bThis is the third in a series of posts where I share something my 6th grade Science students came up with, an idea for sharing their thoughts and questions about the problems facing our Earth.

Do read what this 6th grader wrote. Listen to her words as she makes her plea to us, the adults who are leaving young children such as herself a planet that has so many problems to solve that it can boggle any mind.

These are children who need to be playing and learning but they are more and more being asked to come up with solutions to problems because if they don’t, they might not have a world worth living in!

The World Needs Change

Give her short post a read and do consider leaving a comment or at least sharing her post with your PLN or social network.

Thank you!

A 6th Grader’s Plea for Clean Energy

Republishing these posts to get new readers to my students’ class blog to inspire this new group to write posts!

4622744414_8264e9d05c_zThis is a second in a series of posts where I share something my 6th grade Science students came up with, an idea for sharing their thoughts and questions about the problems facing our Earth.

Energy is something we take for granted. Many of us probably don’t even question where our energy is coming from. The energy needed to power your devices, to bring us light, to cook with, to keep us warm in the winter. We’ve been studying energy in 6th grade Science and looking at some forms of energy that are actually quite clean. Here’s a blog post one of my 6th graders wrote sharing her thoughts on energy consumption in our country:

Clean Energy

Give her blog a read and maybe even leave a comment. If you like what you see, consider sharing her post.

Thank you!
