     Sometimes the most precious aspects of life are those that go unnoticed. Often, something as fascinating and intriguing as a tree is taken for granted by a vast majority of people. Not only do these lavish creations look absolutely beautiful, but they provide human life with an abundant amount of benefits.

One thing trees do is combat climate change. Excess carbon dioxide caused by many factors is rapidly building up in Earth’s atmosphere and contributing to climate change. Trees absorb carbon dioxide, removing and storing the carbon while releasing the oxygen back into the air. In one year, an acre of mature trees absorbs the amount of carbon dioxide produced when a car is driven 26,000 miles. Also, trees clean Earth’s air and atmosphere. Trees absorb odors and pollutant gases (nitrogen oxides, ammonia, sulfur dioxide and ozone) and filter particulates out of the air by trapping them on their leaves and bark. They also provide the atmosphere with oxygen, a necessary element for human respiration and trees slow runoff and hold soil in place on hillsides or slopes, preventing landslides during rain. They provide food through fruit and other items that are able to be harvested such as sap. They provide wood, a necessary item for daily human life, and increase property value, a major assistance if one plans on selling a house. Trees serve as a shelter for wildlife and are a great way to encourage children to spend more time outside as one can build tree houses and go tree climbing, a thrilling and enjoyable activity.

Overall, trees and many more items related to nature are excellent to learn more about the world around humanity. Often, it is vital to disconnect oneself from the rush of work, stressing about projects needed to be completed, and the latest technology. When one is able to take a break from the stress of life and take several moments to bask in nature and enjoy the precious gifts it has to offer, they may find themselves in a less stressed and peaceful environment as they will discover what a treasure life truly is.

Here is the link to several websites that may help you discover more about how to enjoy nature and how resourceful it is:

Week 5 Activity 1

America is known for a large variety of foods. From dishes such as hamburgers to apple pie, we have every food item one can imagine to eat. America specializes in sweet and savory foods. A very popular food being the peanut butter and jelly sandwich. The dish is very self-explanatory as it is simply two slices of bread with peanut butter and your choice of jelly inside. This meal is often packed in school lunches for children along with some packaged goods. Overall, the peanut butter and jelly sandwich is an American classic and will continue to be a favorite in many American households.

Week 4 Activity 3

Halloween across the world is celebrated in various ways. Some people celebrate by trick or treating, some throw large parties, and some don’t celebrate at all. Personally, I celebrate by either throwing or attending a party with my friends. I enjoy how even before Halloween begins I can already begin celebrating by helping set up the party and decorating the house and by thinking of creative costume ideas with my friends. When October 31st finally rolls around the corner, I meet up at my friends house and we wait for the rest of our friends. When we all meet up, we get dressed in our costume and drive all together to the party we are attending. Overall, I deeply enjoy Halloween and think it is a wonderful holiday.

Week 3 Activity 1

I have multiple memories of me and my family spending loving time together. Out of all of them, the one I most adore and vividly remember is when my parents and I went strawberry picking. The summer of 4th grade my mother, father, and I decided to spend time all together at a strawberry field. It was very interesting and fun to observe how the large variety of strawberries grew in their natural habitat. Shortly after harvesting the berries, my mother and I baked strawberry pastries from the strawberries we harvested and we all had a great time together.

Week 3 Activity 2

On September 4, 2014, a beloved actress, comedian, writer, producer, and television host known as Joan Rivers unfortunately passed away. Rivers was a beautiful and hilarious woman who would brighten up any situation. She always found a way to bring humor to any given moment and could make anybody laugh. Sadly, the joyous woman passed away from cardiac arrest at the age of eighty one, yet luckily her fans and other people may still remember her and admire her spirit through shows and movies she starred in.
