Voice Your Opinion Project for Kids
Try this voice your opinion project for kids and speak your mind about an environmental project that you really care about.
Are you concerned about stray animals? Air pollution? The destruction of the rain forest? No matter where you live, you have people who represent you in government.
What You'll Need:
Each area of the United States has two senators and at least one congressional representative. The job of these people is to listen to the people in their area, and try to do something about their problems and concerns.
So, why not write them a letter and tell them what's on your mind! Be as specific as you can about what's bothering you. Tell them what you're doing to help and what you'd like them to do.
Maybe they could try to get new laws passed to take better care of nature. You can even write to the President of the United States! After all, he's your leader, too.
Another way to make your voice heard is to write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. Every newspaper has a page where it prints letters from readers.
Many people read these letters, so it's a chance to tell a lot of people how you feel. Here are the addresses of your government officials:
(Your U.S. Senator's Name)
Washington, DC 20510
(Your U.S. Representative's Name)
U.S. House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, DC 20500
