In their school investigation, the members of the Green Squad found many things that affect people's health and the environment. Some create air or water pollution, though you might not guess it. Others can make people sick.
But kids can do a lot to make your schools, your communities and the world, a better place, and the Green Squad fact sheets explain how, starting with a guide for kids on starting your own Green Squad
. Here in the library the other fact sheets are organized according to the part of the environment they affect the most. The categories are Air, Water, Health and Planet. (Some things appear in more than one category because many things in the environment are closely related.) And the library also has a special section with some of the best websites where kids can study the environment.
In these fact sheets you'll learn about air pollution and ways to keep the air cleaner and protect people's health. (Global warming comes from air pollution, and global warming affects everything!)
In these fact sheets you'll learn about water pollution and ways to keep our water cleaner and protect people's health.
In these fact sheets you'll learn about situations at school that can hurt your health, and ways to protect yourself and other people.
In these fact sheets you'll learn about actions that can harm forests, wildlife habitat and other natural resources, and ways you can save and protect them instead.
