Grade 7 - Reforestation for a Carbon Free Journey
This year, our Grade 7 Wellspringers engaged in a reforestation activity as part of their Math service project. They researched CO2 emissions of cars and did calculations to estimate the number of trees needed to compensate for the pollution caused by different cars. After meeting with Advanced Car Rental of Lebanon, they shared the results of their calculations for how many trees Advanced should plant in order to make up for the CO2 emissions released by their fleet of rental cars each year. In order to take action, Grade 7 joined Advanced Car Rental and Lebanon Reforestation Initiative to plant 450 trees in Joub Jenine as part of their annual reforestation initiative.
Grade 6 - Advocating for Action
Inspired by the UN Sustainable Development Goals, Wellspring Grade 6 students researched issues affecting their communities and created advocacy presentations in the Enlightenment unit for Digital Design using Prezi. They shared their presentations with peers in Grades 6 and 7 to raise awareness about issues such as pollution, gender inequality, poverty and drug addiction. Thanks for teaching us about these important topics! Check out the results of their hard work below.
