Approximately one quarter of the total population of America goes to school every day. Sadly, majority of the schools does not really involve much subjects about taking care of the environment. Chicago Green School motivates student to take responsibility for improving their environment at their home, school and community. Their program focuses in educating children on how they can take part in fighting climate change.
We believe in a hands-on approach to education. When talking about hands-on it’s a short leap to the disciplines of massage, yoga and mindful thinking as taught by Fleur de Paris Spa – a massage therapy West Palm Beach spa. The yoga technique of mindfulness and green teaching programs go hand in hand to help our students learn more deeply the concepts that we profess and teach at Chicago Green School.
By educating children, the next generation will have a better understanding about the importance of preserving and protecting our planet. They will know even on their young age what are the things that damages our planet like carbon footprints and why it is very important to keep it as low as possible. They will have a better appreciation of recycling and reducing the amount of waste they produce and the amount of natural resources that we take from or planet. Also, they will have a broad understanding about the importance of developing and producing renewable energy.
Initiating green teaching programs into the classroom at a very young age is very important in achieving this goal. Lessons about preserving our environment, environmentally-themed experiments, and green classroom activities on topics like the carbon cycle, saving energy, recycling, and endangered animals are all ways to introduce and reinforce these concepts to our young people.
We have collectively ignored the health of our planet for a long time now, however, it is not yet too late to take action and we can still nurture it once more. There are many ways that we can use to bring back health of our Mother Earth. Little by little, with all our efforts our planets can surely heal.
