Ways To Teach Kids About Community & The Environment

Teaching kids about our communities and the environment is a very important step to creating a better and brighter future. Not only will they have the tools they need to grow and become contributing members of society but, they will be able to pass the knowledge onto others and help give back. Here are a few ways to teach kids about giving back to the community and helping the environment:

Take them to clean up local parks and streets so they can see the affects of littering. Explain how it accumulates and begins to create unsightly messes and harms the environment. Plants and animals suffer from littering as well as the community so it is good to touch on these points and explain why it is so harmful. Another great topic to touch base on is 10 painless ways to give your kids a CO2-free planet and save money doing it.

Take them on a tour within local buildings. Our brownie group took a tour of a local frozen yogurt shop to see how it works. They learned about how the product is made, who works there, and how many people are affected by the work they do. 

So what exactly is a community? community is a group of people living or working together in the same area. People in communities might go to the same schools, shop in the same stores and do the same things. They help each other and solve problems together. If it's a bigger community, the people in it might not always go to the same places, but they might like or believe in the same things.

Teaching kids about what a community is and how it all works together is an important part of growing and learning. If they know more about how it works they can begin to question why things are done the way they are and even come up with ideas to make it better. Life is all about growing and creating positive change that affects us all as a planet. You may have a Nobel prize winner amongst you and helping them grow could secure a brighter future for all of us.
