Grades 5 - 6Roots & Shoots
As a chapter of the Jane Goodall Institute's Roots & Shoots program, the young people explore issues of human justice, fair treatment of animals, and environmental health. They decide what they want to do, figure out how to go about doing it, and discover whether or not it works.
In past years, for example, they have been guardian/sponsors for an orphan
chimp, raised funds for various animal rescue centers around the globe,
visited a Wolf Sanctuary in southeastern Pennsylvania, met Jane Goodall,
provided OXFAM hunger banquet educational experiences for the congregation,
and the list goes on.
