The Rising River

Map pinWinnipeg, Manitoba

Students have noticed a rising water level in the Red River. After observing the river, Room 36 wondered about the water level’s affect on the erosion of the banks and if this increases the garbage in the river. They want to help lessen the garbage and find out where the river goes.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots

Do great things in your community.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots began in 1991 when Dr. Jane met with 12 Tanzanian high school students who wanted to tackle urgent problems in their community. Since that meeting, Roots & Shoots groups have multiplied many times over and can now be found in more than 50 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits animals, people and the environment.
