    I am helping my young scout earn his wolf badge and am in need of help. The last requirement we have left to do is to read "three stories that tell how poeple are protecting our world".

    I have scanned the web for any stories about the environment a 7 yr old can relate to and have come up empty. I find lots of websites with science projects, education and news, but none with stories.

    Does anyone here know of a good resource where a story can be found?

    Does "protecting our world" mean environmentally or in general (Red Cross, etc.)?

    It is supposed to be a story about people protecting the earth specific to the environment.

    That greenworks link looks good, but at first glance it seems to be targeting adults. I'll dig deeper into it and may just make do with it.

    I guess there really isn't much on the web for children other than dull educational 'Why you should care..." sites.

    Maybe there is an enterprizing environmentalist out there who could champion this?
