Teaching children to Preserve Our Environment
Sam Jones module 3.3
Children today do not always have the enormous back yard with forests growing as far as the eye can see. There for it is up to the adults and parents to take the time and teach our next generation the importance of preserving our natural Environment. Have you ever taken your child fishing, hunting, or camping, and look at the smiles that come across their ...view middle of the document...
When I think about it now, I am pretty sure she just wanted extra hands on tilling and weeding the garden, but I loved it. Sneaking as many sugar snap peas as possible, I would do my part.
As the years went on, I became old enough to hunt. Watching my father and brothers hunt wasnâ€™t good enough; I needed to experience the real thing. After picking up on all of my fatherâ€™s secrets, I put them to use on a beautiful 8 point whitetail buck that scored a whopping 135 5/8 inches. In the hunting world that is pretty good, which I soon found out after showing it off a bit with my dad. I used the exact techniques my father had showed me as to what deer like to eat in the forest, such as acorns, moss, alfalfa, and wild berryâ€™s. Without these nourishing foods for the deer, and other wildlife, their numbers would surely decline over time. To me it is very important to teach the next generations the importance of keeping our environment clean, so it can provide the foods.
When we would see garbage scattered on the side of the road, we would stop and pick it up. My parents would explain to me why it was so important to keep our environment clean, and how long it takes for different things to deteriorate. My brothers and sisters and I would all do our part to make sure we didnâ€™t leave any garbage behind, and clean it up if we found some. My mother would explain what renewable and nonrenewable resources were. Finding a cigarette butt on the ground bugged her the most. Did you know that it takes approximately 18 months to 10 years for a cigarette butt to degrade? Knowing what are nonrenewable resources and renewable resources are just one of things thingâ€™s my parents taught me. Groups all over are now coming together and working together to create and teach how to obtain sustainable environment.
Sustainable development refers to a form of development in which the use of resources meets human needs while preserving the environment so that these needs can be met not only in the present, but also for generations to come. In the sustainability definition the sustainable development ties together concern for the carrying capacity of natural systems with the challenges human societies and addresses environmental issues. Renewable energy along with energy efficiency is the concept of sustainable energy or sustainable energy is based on the two pillars of renewable energies and energy efficiency and aim at environmental sustainability.
Renewable sources are so much healthier for our environment, for animals, and humans. Renewable sources are sources that can be sustained, recycled, and most of all replaced. Such as; wind, sun rays and plants. Nonrenewable sources are sources that are being taken out of earth and cannot be sustained as fast as they are taking it. It cannot be replaced once taken out. These are gas, oil, coal, and natural gas. These "nonrenewable resources are killing the environment for plants, animals, mammals, and us humans.
