Review for Lake Champlain International (LCI), Colchester, VT, USA
Juliana Dixon came to my school this spring to talk about Lake Champlain and water quality. She spoke to 4th, 5th, and 6th Graders. It was a great experience for us. It tied into our studies on ecosystem interdependence and really gave students some ideas to think about. Juliana herself was engaging with the students and had a presentation that kept them interested with hands-on activities to really bring to live the ideas she was presenting about run-off. She also struck a perfect balance between doom and gloom and what kids and their families can do. My students left the class cautiously optimistic, knowing that Lake Champlain is facing some major health challenges, and that some of them are due to actions that are specific to their own families or communities. I look forward to building on the discussion this presentation started at our school.
