What’s happening at Standing Rock has so many connections with our Seedlings focus groups: Water Habitats, Our Changing Landscape, and Our Mechanical World. The ways in which different age groups would meaningfully connect with this event would of course vary greatly. Has anyone discussed Standing Rock with their students? Please share with us in the comments section what conversations or studies have emerged.

This article from Matthew Green at WQED provides some background on the topic as well as a lesson plan for late middle school/high school aged students.
