http://earthsaversclubforkids.comThis is a fantastic website created by kids for kids to encourage them to do what they can to save the earth. Take a look, share it with your students and encourage them to take the pledge. Each person creates their own personalized pledge to do ONE thing to save the earth using the starter: "As a member of the Earth Saver's Club for Kids, I pledge to save the earth by..." The site also includes games, student work, earthsaving tips and projects, and links to many resources. Kylie is one of the students who participated in Earthcast 09 where she shared her plans for creating this website. You will be so impressed by their vision and resources, and I'm sure you will be as inspired as I am by their example! This is how the sisters who created the site describe it:
Hi and welcome to the Earth Saver's Club for Kids! I am Kylie (10). I am Devon (8). And I am Piper (7) and we are sisters who decided we wanted to do our part to take care of our earth and everything in it. The Earth Saver's Club for kids is all about kid's joining together with other kids from around the world to help save the earth. Anybody can be a member, all you have to do is promise to do one thing to save the earth. We founded the club for four main reasons:
* First, even though we are YOUNG, we knew we needed to be leaders in saving the earth for our future.
* We thought that the Earth Saver's Club for Kids would give other young people the help they need to not just learn about saving the earth but to actually DO something to make a difference.
* Since we all share the same earth, we wanted our club to be GLOBAL, open to ALL kids around the world
* We know that the time is NOW, not tomorrow, not next week, but Now for kids to start helping to save the earth.
