COWSPIRACY - The Sustainability Secret

This video guide goes along with the condensed version of Cowspiracy. This shorter version is only 15 minutes long and includes all the major highlights. It is much better in a classroom setting. The video makes light of the ever increasing amount of greenhouse gases, the affects on climate change and the almost unknown major cause of environmental destruction, animal agriculture. The video guide is 3 pages long in PDF format. It includes previewing, during viewing and post viewing questions for students and directions. The video link is hyperlinked in the main heading for quick access. This lesson would take about 45 minutes if you view the video only once and 1 hour if you show it twice, which is what I like to do. "Animal agriculture is the leading cause of deforestation, water consumption and pollution, is responsible for more greenhouse gases than the transportation industry, and is a primary driver of rainforest destruction, species extinction, habitat loss, topsoil erosion, ocean “dead zones,” and virtually every other environmental ill. Yet it goes on, almost entirely unchallenged." Also check out: 1. 2. 3. 4.

Executive Functioning Card Game: No Match PenguinsQuick View

Executive Functioning Card Game: No Match Penguins

No Match Penguins as a fun card game and cognitive remedial tool that exercises executive functioning skills: working memory, attention to detail, stamina, as well as sustained attention and mental shifting. For remedial purposes, No Match Penguins requires players to find two cards that "don't match." Players compete to quickly find a no match - but it's not as easy as it sounds! Players have to attend to specific details. For one to 4 players, this game can benefit students with executive functioning disorder, ADHD, learning disabilities, as well as the head injured and the elderly. No Match Penguin is a fabulous way to strengthen attention to visual details, attention and stamina - while having fun! Research purports that children are not born with executive functioning skills, but they are born with the potential to develop them. Just like going to the gym strengthens the body, games that exercise executive functioning skills improve cognition. According to the Center on the Developing Child at Harvard University, “When children have opportunities to develop executive function and self-regulation skills, individuals and society experience lifelong benefits. These skills are crucial for learning and development. They also enable positive behavior and allow us to make healthy choices for ourselves and our families.” No Match Penguin demonstration: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x5EaO4mh2zQ
