Distance Learning – Additional recommended Resources

Jane Goodall Institute/Roots and Shoots

Jane Goodall is the renowned scientist and conservationist who transformed our understanding of chimpanzees.  The mission of Jane Goodall Institute, incorporating Roots and Shoots, is to empower young people to affect positive change in their communities.  Roots and Shoots provide tools and resources that develop students’ 21st-century learning skills, such as critical thinking, problem-solving, and a spirit of collaboration.
