Lesson 5 introduces a game-changing action in real time: How to amend the U.S. Constitution to defend against internal threats to democracy. Using films, students reflect on the reason to amend the Constitution, examine the constitutional amendment process, and consider the Supreme Court’s role in shaping historical progress. Eighth-grade students evaluate three proposed amendments, and all grades use interactive activities to explore how an “ideal” amendment could restore rule to the people and law and order to corporations and society.

Humans have put immense pressure on our planet by using products and practicing behaviors detrimental to the environment. In order to protect our natural world, we need to find new ways to provide for our growing population while not degrading our ecosystems. Nature has survived for millennia, with animals, plants, and bacteria demonstrating how they are natural problem solvers and survivors. Scientists and engineers are using processes found in nature as a basis for innovative solutions to human challenges. In this activity, students will take inspiration from the adaptations of some of their favorite species to develop an idea to solve a current problem facing our environment.

WWF and other leading organizations assess biodiversity around the world in order to evaluate the status of our planet and determine necessary actions so both people and nature can thrive. Scientists look at a number of different factors when determining an area’s biodiversity health. In this activity, students will follow similar guidelines and survey the biodiversity of their school or community grounds. Based on results, they will strategize ways to increase and protect biodiversity by making the area more habitable for species.
