What issue did your Take Action project address?
Our Take Action project addressed the issue of dog cruelty that occurs in puppy mills.
What was your Take Action Project? Who did you involve in your project?
For our Take Action project, we made lesson plans for both second and sixth grade that included information on puppy mills and the importance of not supporting them. The lesson plan also included information about caring for a dog and the responsibilities of dog ownership. I worked on this project with Colleen McCarthy and in partnership with ROAR in Ridgefield.
What were the results? How did it affect the community?
All the lesson plans have been passed on to ROAR for them to use in their education program. We have educated girls now and in the future about the problems of puppy mills.
What did you learn from the experience?
I learned more about the skills of time management and planning. I also gained confidence from standing up in front of a large group of people when we presented our project to younger troops.
