Kids around the world have concerns just like grownups. Some of their concerns are global warming, bacteria, fire ants, pollution, conservation, and atomic war.
Global warming may be a big future problem. Evidence says that the consequences of global warming will be faced today as well as tomorrow. Those consequences include heat waves, sea-level risings, melting glaciers, and warming of the poles. If things go on like they are we may see things like spreading disease, earlier spring arrival, animal range changes, coral reef bleaching, downpours, droughts, and fires. The Union of Concerned Scientists of Cambridge, Maryland is trying to warn people of the problem.
The good news is that most bacteria die by antibiotic drugs. The bad news is that a few bugs refuse to be killed off by any type of drugs. Drug companies are trying to find microscopic bacteria killers in the rain forest, oceans, and in the mud below the earth's surface.
You have heard of the fire ant. The red ants have infested our area. If you step on their nests they will sting anyone in the area.
Sixth graders in Hawaii are concerned about pollution. They are worried that the ocean will become polluted with rubbish and oil.
Students in South Africa are worried about conservation. They learn about conservation with their own garden.
IN Japan, students are concerned about peace in the world. The atomic bomb was dropped on Japan in 1945. They don't want that to ever happen again.
In Raeford, North Carolina Kids are concerned about the end-of-grade tests. In the future it determine whether or not you pass or fail your grade. We are also concerned about drugs and violence everywhere.
