Caleb led the Troop through the history of environmentalism in the United States using his powerpoint slides and explained the relationship of Boy Scouts to environmental science (requirement 1).
Then, Scouts learned about air pollution and acid rain (req. 3.b.3), watching an informative video by National Geographic called “What is Acid Rain?” . After discussion, they learned about the consequences of acidic precipitation to our national monuments and other buildings in Washington, D.C. from a Discovery clip.
Finally, they talked about what large and small changes countries, communities, and individuals can make to ameliorate air pollution and plan to report back next week two things they changed in their daily lives.
