If you love our planet, the environment, people, and animals, this course is for you!
Roots & Shoots is an eight-week class designed for Middle School/Jr. High level students. The culminating project is an action plan explaining a service-learning project based upon the identification of a local or global community problem involving animals, people, and/or the environment. Student may choose to independently continue the course by following through to take action and perform their service-learning activity to make a difference in the world. If they accomplish their service-learning project, students are encouraged to submit their project to the Jane Goodall Roots & Shoots online newsletter to share their work with other students around the world.
Roots & Shoots includes the website URLs as resources for the course: RootsAndShoots.org and JaneGoodall.org. Signing up for a membership on the website is free. Once there, you can create project profiles, invite other users to “join” the project, and collaboratively share updates and photos on the project page. You can also browse other Roots & Shoots projects for inspiration, earn achievement badges for your work, and share your projects on social media!
