|Post Date:||September 11, 2019|
Service learning expert Cathryn Berger Kaye and environmental advocate Philippe Cousteau give kids the knowledge, ideas, and inspiration to take action and care for the water planet. From service learning expert Cathryn Berger Kaye, M.A., and environmental advocate Philippe Cousteau with EarthEcho International, comes an opportunity for kids to shape the future of the planet. In their book, Make a Splash! A Kid's Guide to Protecting Our Oceans, Lakes, Rivers, & Wetlands, Kaye and Cousteau reveal facts about our waters, their inhabitants, and the threats they face, while presenting inspiring stories of kids in action around the globe and practical tips and ideas for making a difference.
Make a Splash! offers a global look at the issues our water planet is facing - trash, pollution, climate change, oil spills - as well as what kids can do, and are already doing, to help. This book introduces kids to the ideas behind service learning, a rapidly growing teaching strategy that combines academics with youth initiative to help their communities. Service learning offers teachers and students opportunities to connect science, math, history, and literature to environmental issues in their school and community.
Make a Splash! is the elementary-level counterpart to Kaye and Cousteau's award-winning book Going Blue: A Teen Guide to Saving Our Oceans, Lakes, Rivers, & Wetlands. The back matter in Make a Splash! includes a glossary and book and web resources. A free leader's guide is available online at http://www.freespirit.com/service-learning-service-projects-make-a-splash-leaders-guide/.
