How to Settle Differences

A conflict is a
disagreement
between one or
more people.
~
~
Resolution is a
settlement between
them.
•
How do you handle conflicts? Put a check if you:
Every day people have disagreements. It's hard to go through life
without them.
We all grow up learning how to
handle conflict by seeing how others
handle it.
Some of us learn from parents,
teachers, friends, or even Tv.
In many schools, kids are taking
lessons in conflict resolution.
By learning these skills now, they
can become better citizens who know
how to settle things. They have
learned a better way.
Conflict is not all bad. Conflict often
brings about changes. Often these
changes are for the best.

temporary and
you will just
let it go away.

Decide to just give in
and accept the
changes
someone
wants.

Pretend that the
problem is not there
and does not
bother you
when it really
does.
D
Run away and try to avoid
the person or the situation.

and ask
them to
settle it.
D
Fight and argue.

The Atlantic loggerhead turtle ...
• is
endangered
because
its
nesting
areas
have been
destroyed
and disturbed.
Development, beach-sand mining and erosion hav~
been some of the problems. Some turtles have been ...
accidentally caught in fishing nets. The turtle is also
prey for some dogs and raccoons.

• has a reddish-brown shell about 45 inches long.
• female lays about 120 eggs at a time on
undisturbed beaches with well-drained dunes, clean
sand and grassy vegetation. The eggs hatch about two
months later, usually at night. The babies make their
way to the ocean.
• eats ocean animals such as mollusks, sponges and
horseshoe crabs. It has strong jaws that it uses to
crush shells.
• lives in the warm ocean waters along much of the
Atlantic Coast. It comes on land from May through
August to lay its eggs.
