Subject: Environmental Science
Why is it important to learn about the environmental sciences, and how can this knowledge be used in our own lives.
Learning about the environment and how everything in the natural world connects is the key to caring about our planet and having a desire to protect it. Understanding the scientific systems that govern the natural laws of the Earth will lead us to better inventions, innovations, and concepts that will create a brighter, healthier future for our planet and for generations of humans, plants, and animals to come.
Subject: World History
Why do you think it is important to understand the history of our world's cultures and societies, and why do you think we should learn about the history of cultures besides our own?
History is a reflection of the lessons, concepts, and principles that humanity has learned throughout the ages. If we do not understand what history has to teach us, then we are doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past. Learning about the cultures and histories of other peoples can also help instill within us a sense of empathy, understanding, and camaraderie as members of the same species despite differences in geography, race, or beliefs.
Subject: Folklore and Mythology
Many folktales deliver lessons in morality, choice, and justice; why do you think these concepts were important in ancient cultures, and how do you think they are applicable in the modern-day?
Many of the concepts taught in ancient folk tales are timeless lessons that can apply in any era. The story of The Boy Who Cried Wolf warns against lying and tells that those who lie will eventually face the consequences of their actions. This folk tale promotes honesty, a virtue that was valued throughout history and is still considered a virtue in modern society.
