This artifact is connected to content knowledge because in order to know ethical issues to debate and research you need to have content knowledge. I am aware of the importance of agriculture and sustainability on Molokai. As someone who just came back from New York I believe its of high importance to be teaching our students where their natural resources come from and how they are imported. How these importations effect economies, environments, and well being of others. A lot of people in general aren't aware of on going issues in our environment and it is our job as teachers to educate our students to make a positive difference to their future.

I chose this artifact because it is a great way for students to understand where their resources come from and their importance. The older I get the more I understand the politics and issues we have obtaining the resources we need to live everyday. I want students to open their eyes and learn how they can make a difference in the world.
