Last Friday, I was able to visit and present to a small group of interested fourth graders about the palm oil issue, with an emphasis on Halloween candy. The presentation was a success and many of the students seemed motivated by the palm oil issue, raising their hands to ask questions and seek more information about what foods contained palm oil. The Adams class was alarmed by the destruction of rainforest and shocked at the sheer amount of different types of food that contained palm oil.
If you’re interested in hosting me to present in your classroom in person or over Skype, please contact me. I am always glad to have an opportunity to spread the word to the next generation of changemakers.
Thank you to the Adams class and to the teachers and parents who made my presentation possible!
