Part of Earth Day activities

Over 300 students from throughout the region spent a morning at the Delaware Museum of Natural History exploring ways to improve our quality of life on the planet.

As part of the DMNH’s Earth Day activities, for the third year in a row, seventh graders from The Tatnall School designed interactive and creative conservation-minded stations to teach kindergarten to third graders the importance of protecting the earth.

The middle school students have worked with their teachers and DMNH educators to learn how to present information to engage the younger students.

According to Director of Communications Jennifer Acord, there is a dual learning element to the day’s activity, as both sets of students are exploring new concepts.

Activity themes include:

Biomimicry: Let Nature Build Our Future.

Ocean Habitats: You Are The Perfect Potion To Keep Our Ocean In Motion.

Pollinators: Without Pollinators We Wouldn’t Bee Here.

Recycling: Eat, Sleep, Recycle, Repeat.

Invasive Species: Spread The Word, Not The Weeds!

Water and Pollution: Pollution, What Is The Solution?

Climate Change: The Age of Climate Change.

Solar Energy: Clean, Efficient, and Reusable Power.

Endangered Animals: Save Endangered Species! Being Extinct Stinks.

Water Use: Not Everyone Has Water. Let’s Change That!

Wind Energy: Have You Ever Heard Of Wind Energy? I’m A Fan.
