4-H Inspiring Community Action | Earth Day Edition
Thank you for joining Inspiring Community Action | Earth Day Edition Online Family Learning project! This is a project intended to help you and your family/friend-group look closely at your world and take action for your local environment.
Our hope is that families (youth and adults together) will take full part in this project – completing the three activities demonstrated here, and completing post-activity surveys and/or discussions. Our plan is for you to have fun together, learn from one another and, inspire others to take action for the earth. You may space the activities out to be one per week or move along faster if you wish. No prior experience needed, just follow the directions, do the activity, and share some of your results with friends, family, and each other!
To complete the project - please do all of the items in each of the topics (check off boxes as you do them, and you will notice the discussion boxes self-check when you do the activity requested). Each section includes a:
- "Discussion" - please answer the Q and then respond to one other person <you don't have to have a long reply - okay to say something like - "cool idea" or "that has happened to me"> - it is a chance to share your ideas and get to know another family or two.
- "Lesson + Activity" - read or watch the information that is shared, and do the activity.
- "Share what you did" - Along the way, and at the end of each activity, we ask that you share photos of your successes here in our Photo gallery or via social media using the hashtag #4hfamilyfunonlineEarthDay
Once you complete all of the activities (be sure to log in and complete activities), you can print the certificate. Those who have completed the activities by April 30 will be put in a random drawing for a $20 cash award to help you with your next project.
Should you have any questions - please feel free to reach out to Celeste Carmichael, project leader - and club leader for the Millard Fillmore 4-H Club - firstname.lastname@example.org.
