How Valid HTML Code is Crucial to Search Engine Optimization

You should know first that majority of web pages are done using HTML. Like every language, HTML utilizes its own set of syntax and grammar and every document written with the use of HTML should follow rules accordingly. However, since HTML constantly undergoes change, it has become sort of a complicated issue.

地球绿色少年入选团队名单

地球绿色少年入选团队名单



地球绿色少年(Teens for Planet Earth)是由国际野生动物保护学会(WCS)教育部发起的一个全球性项目。该项目旨在指导、资助青少年团队(13-19周岁)开展以环境保护为主题的小课题,并对每年评选产生的优秀团队提供奖励。地球绿色少年项目成立于2006年。目前,该项目的成员包括来自世界33个国家的由391名青少年组成的116个团队,以及320名成人顾问。

为了鼓励中国的青少年学生积极参与地球绿色少年活动,WCS中国项目自2009年5月在广东省(以广州、深圳地区为主)试点推广地球绿色少年,并提出了“爱我请不要宠我——关注被人们当作宠物的野生动物”的主题,允以优先资助。

截至5月17日,WCS共收到来自广州、深圳地区的28份有效申请。通过为期一周的面试交流及对团队能力的初步考核,现确定2009年WCS在粤推广地球绿色少年活动入选团队名单,如下:

关于“爱我请不要宠我”的一个简单的T4PE课题构思参考

你提到的同学们对宠物鸟类的现状感兴趣,我提供的一个思路是:







背景:根据WCS华南项目的科学顾问提供给我的信息,深圳的宠物市场里也卖有很多保护鸟类:如暗绿秀眼(用做宠物)、叉尾太阳鸟(用作宠物)、白腰文鸟(佛教徒大量被买来放生)。







所以,学生们可以做的一个小课题是:



1、 搜集或向老师了解上述三种鸟类的知识;



2、 学习如何辨认这三种鸟类;



3、 到附近的几个宠物市场去看看,有没有卖这三种鸟类(在老师的带领下),还可以指导小朋友记录他们看到了多少家店有卖这三种鸟类;



4、 搜集信息或者采访WCS的科学家,了解宠物贸易给这些美丽的小鸟们造成的危害,以及放生的不利影响。



5、 小朋友们在一起集体来设计制作一份小海报,内容是宠物贸易和放生对这三种鸟类的危害,海报下可以有个承诺:不放生!不购买这几种鸟类做宠物。



6、… Continue

地球绿色少年教育项目构思

一个思想分享给了另外一个人就会变成两个思想。与他人分享的同时,你肯定也会有更多的收获。



如果你喜欢小朋友:

1、收集资料,深入了解某一种濒危的野生动物(比如老虎);

2、设计、编排关于该野生动物的小游戏、PPT甚至是小课程包;

3、和当地的某一所小学联系,征求学校的同意,允许你们定期到该校开展环境教育;

4、在环教课堂上尝试使用你们设计的游戏、材料;

5、在活动之前和之后调查参加活动的老师和学生,以确定它们是否有效;

6、将你们设计优秀小游戏推荐相关环保组织。



如果你喜欢上网:

1、上网搜索活跃在本地区的优秀环保组织;

2、定期浏览这些环保组织的官方网站,关注它们的活动;

3、在你的个人博客、QQ空间里转贴这些环保组织的活动信息;

4、通过电子邮件,把环保组织开展的活动信息告诉你的朋友们。



如果你喜欢看电影:

地球绿色少年栖息地项目构思

我们都需要一个地方居住。保护栖息地对于拯救濒危物种非常重要。以下是一些想法,提示你可以做些什么来帮助保护物种的栖息地。



如果你喜欢绿色食品:

1、调查学校超市里的牛奶、水果、蔬菜都是从哪里运来的;

2、在学校发起一场购买本地产品的活动;

3、帮助本地的农民,定期在学校里出售本地生产的牛奶及乳制品;作为交换条件,农民应发展更多对环境有益的农业。



如果人们经常向你问路:

1、研究你所在地区的公园、动物园、水族馆、小树林、河流、青少年宫以及其它自然或教育场所;

2、创建一张“绿色地图”(无论是用手绘还是用电脑软件),在地图上标注并介绍上述每一项;

3、在你所在的社区派发地图。



如果你住的宿舍有个阳台:

1、组织学校里的学生回收可乐瓶、塑料瓶等废弃的瓶子;

2、将回收来的塑料瓶子卖给回收站;

3、用卖塑料瓶子得到的钱购买植物种子;

4、将种子赠送给积极参与回收活动的同学,教他们怎么在宿舍阳台上种植绿色植物。…

地球绿色少年水项目构思

水是生命之源。浏览下面的水资源保护项目构思方案,看看你可以做些什么来改善本地的水环境。

如果你生活在海边:
1、调查本地的海滩,为出现在那里的各种垃圾建立档案;
2、研究常见垃圾种类对海洋生命和水体质量的影响;
3、争取相关部门的同意,在海滩建立标志牌以警示扔垃圾者这些垃圾的危害;

如果你想充分利用雨水:
1、研究能在极少量水环境中生存,或者有助于水土保持的植物;
2、种植各种植物,仔细观察并比较不同的植物的水土保持能力;
3、建造一个小型雨水公园,这样几乎不需要灌水而能使土壤保持水分;
4、用桶收集雨水并用于公园灌溉。

如果你擅长做化学分析:
1、测量城市河道里的水的各种性质,如PH值、氧溶解量、氯化物含量、温度等等;
2、与煮沸的开水或加入常见污染物的相似样本进行比较;
3、将你的结果和淡水鱼类或其他水生生物需求的水质信息进行比较;
4、撰写研究报告,并向当地适当的部门报告你的发现。
