Recently we read the story: The little Corroborree Frog
And it has inspired some action in my children. There was no pushing of we have to do this, we have to learn that or we have to save the world. There were simple discussions after we read the story and little discussions around the house when we used water or decided to make our own snacks instead of buying them.
So what happened?
We made a link
My son and I visited the zoo and were lucky enough to see a Corroborree frog.
We made another link
When we returned home my son and daughter watched a couple of short videos on the computer so we could see how they move in the wild and in captivity.
We learnt something and wanted to share it.
There is no point just keeping all the great facts to yourselves so we made posters that we can stick up at home and take to school for news.
See – simple!
If you have time at home, perhaps half an hour you too can educate and empower your children to make a difference in their world. If we don’t start to take action now many animals and people will not be living a great life in the future.
