Education Planet - Earth Day Resources Provides annotated links to web sites, lesson plans, and articles. Also offers reviews of books, videos, and software. http://www.educationplanet.com/articles/earthday.html
Extractions: - American Heritage Magazine, October 1993 Earth Day was born out of former Senator, Gaylord Nelson's conviction that the declining state of our environment had for too long been a non-issue on our national political stage. He believed that a dramatic event was necessary to focus national attention and dialogue on the environment. Thirty years ago he envisioned a nation-wide "teach-in" on the environment and announced that it would take place in the Spring of 1970. That teach-in became the first Earth Day and an estimated 20 million people from 140 countries participated. The event was pivotal in making the environment a permanent issue in American politics and culture. Over the past thirty years, the observance of Earth Day has grown steadily with more and more people the world over joining together to increase awareness of the Earth and environmental responsibility. In fact, it is estimated that over a half a billion people will participate in the Earth Day celebration. Earth Day also presents an ideal opportunity for educators to increase students' awareness of environmental issues and to teach them ways to protect and conserve our natural resources. There is a vast array of Earth Day resources available on the Internet; however, finding the specific teaching resources you need can be extremely time consuming. Education Planet wants to make it quick and easy for busy educators to find the best of these resources so they can plan a meaningful Earth Day for their students.

Extractions: History: A cornucopia, also called a horn of plenty, is a symbol of abundance taken from an ancient legend. Thousands of years ago, the people of Greece believed that their god, Zeus, was reared by a beautiful maiden. As the story goes, she fed the infant Zeus an endless supply of goat's milk from a cornucopia, or goat's horn. As centuries passed, most people forgot this ancient legend, but the cornucopia remained a symbol of an endless supply of food or drink. As the history of the United States unfolded, the cornucopia became a symbol for Thanksgiving, the day set aside in thanks for abundance.

Study Guide Home Page This study guide serves as a supplement to the radio series, Countdown to Millennium An Oral History project. This resource for teachers includes lesson plans, background on oral history collection, instructions for video interviews and web page construction, and links to oral history archives. http://www.tcomschool.ohiou.edu/cdtm
Extractions: Resources for this study guide will be the Countdown To Millennium website at - www.frognet.net/countdown and the lesson plans on this site. In addition, if a classroom has access to a video camera or an audio tape recorder and a web design program (we used Front Page), then the class could build their own collection of local oral histories. See Video Taping Techniques and Web Design Notes for our instructions on how to create a video archive and individual web pages. ABOUT THE STUDY GUIDE This study guide has several sections. The first two pages, What Is Oral History? and Why Use Oral History? , give a background to the methodology of oral narratives and why they are important. There are examples from oral histories to illustrate the points made. They're a good background for teachers and students alike. Additional pages talk about how you can create an archive of local stories in the classroom. Once established, this database could be added to year after year and become a worthwhile resource for your students and for the community.
