This February love on the Earth by adopting a species through the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) works to save and preserve species and landscapes while addressing the larger global threats and forces that impact them. Your chapter can help save species by adopting an animal through the WWF website found below. An adoption kit cost $55 and includes a plush toy of the animal you choose, a photo, adoption certificate, and species card. Encourage your chapter to raise money to adopt an animal, and perhaps do a survey to choose which species your chapter would like to adopt whether it’s the dolphin, panda, platypus, kangaroo, or maybe even the tarantula.
Who knows business and working in the workforce better than someone who’s actually working in the industry? This month’s classroom integration idea is to invite a guest speaker to come speak about business, their job, interview skills, or anything business related! Having a guest speaker come in not only brings real business skills into the classroom, but this also allows students to meet and ask questions to a professional. Some ways to finding a guest speaker is asking school business partners, someone from your local chamber of commerce, or even a parent.
