Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.
This week in class, we’re reading "Conservation as a National Duty" by President Theodore Roosevelt.
As an explorer and naturalist, Theodore Roosevelt, who served as the 26th President of the United States (1858-1919), was a great supporter of environmental policies and protection. In this speech delivered on May 16th, 1908, President Roosevelt charges conservation as a national responsibility.
"What are the costs and benefits of technology?" and "How do we view nature?"
