Let’s talk boats from thousands of years ago or about the tankers sitting off The Port of LA. It will be a blend of history and the changing science of how ships evolved. How were they created and what do ships from ancient times have in common with the ships of today? Think about aircraft carriers compared to three masted sailboats – they all had to stay afloat and if they didn’t we would like to know why! We can learn about draft, survival at sea, life on board, navigation, knots, and ocean currents. We will choose some particular ships, like The Mary Rose, The Pampanito, and learn about the science behind unearthing treasures from places like The Whydah Pirate Museum.

The goal of this class is to foster a desire to “be the change” to help make our community, nation and world a better place for those who come after us. Through practices of philanthropy, charity and stewardship we dedicate the semester to helping three main organizations: one for humans, one for animals and one for the environment. Students learn of other children from around the world who have made an impact for good through mindful choices, community awareness and civic action. They also are introduced to the many wonderful charitable organizations both locally and globally. With the changes we are implementing due to Covid19, the biggest change Social Action will face is the way in which we donate to the organizations the students vote on. Past semesters relied on the sales from the school snack store and pizza lunch days. This semester our donations will be in a different form. Some ideas have already been discussed with current members such as providing companionship to those in need through a pen pal program or perhaps offering online craft time for kids with the possibility for donations.
1 hr, Wednesdays, 3:30pm - 4:30pm
