20-20 Challenge on Deforestation
Posted 11/10/2015 08:12AM

Students of grade 6 at Ain Aar have participated in the 20-20 Challenge focusing on the topic of deforestation. It was an inter-disciplinary project involving Science, Social Studies, and English.  Our students collaborated with students from Franklin Avenue Middle School, New Jersey.  Grade 6 started by researching the problem of deforestation in Lebanon and the world.  This was followed by a reforestation initiative through planting trees in Baabda Forest. The students later received the Lebanese Reforestation Initiative (LRI) to help them understand the issues, impacts, and challenges regarding deforestation and reforestation in Lebanon. Our students’ final product included presentations that showed their understanding of the problem and proposed solutions.  This challenge provides an excellent foundation for meaningful problem- solving that leads to a more promising global future for our students.
