Our campaign will be successful if we are able to successfully compost the discarded lunch remains. Once added to the other grades garden beds, we hope to see growth. The garden beds are being replaced with non-toxic materials currently.

We want to create a weekly news and information program the helps to showcase the amazing things we are doing as a school to the local community. Our hope is to video record this information and put it out on our website as a weekly update.

The 16 students will work with our Technology teacher and students to measure for, design, cut, construct, and install the shelving that was not included in the greenhouse. Once the shelves are installed, the students will begin growing plants and performing inquiry activities throughout this time. Once matured, flowering plants will be transferred into our Pollinator Garden, while vegetables will be used to create healthy recipes tbaf we will prepare in the Home Economies kitchen.

We will start by introducing 4th-6th grade students to sustainable options which can be used in lieu of plastic and styrofoam products. NOTE: Many of these students have gone through the Kids for Positive Change program and are familiar with skipping the straw, using reusable straws, bags and bottles. We also will work with a community restaurant owner who actively composts, and teach students about the benefits of composting. We'd like to set up a composting station at school and continue our school recycling program. We will have students research sustainable and compostable products, like utensils made from corn and cups made from wheat and provide them with materials to "build" their own compostable products. A main focus will be raising awareness about plastic bag pollution and promoting the use of reusable bags. Much like our Classroom-Community Action Assignment: "The Last Plastic Straw Ashtabula Campaign," we will have students launch a similar campaign about plastic bags. Students will present at Ashtabula City Council and Board of Education meeting about zero waste and how to move toward making Ashtabula Area City Schools a Zero Waste / Sustainable School System!

The young entrepreneurs will be engaging with their local communities through the Roots & Shoots Formula Toolkit. Planned events aligned to the Sustainable Development Goals build on the SDG "Heroes for Change" comic series where the participants will earn a badge for each of the Sustainable Development Goal activities that they participate in - eg Mother Earth Day and World Environment Day (22 April and 5 June) which support Goals 12 - Responsible Consumption and Production and 13 Climate Action - both days are focussed on Act to end Plastic - Beat Plastic Pollution.

Specifically, we'll try to be more animated when standing at the front of the class - making our facial expressions more pronounced, using exaggerated hand gestures, changing the speed, tone and volume of our voice... we're trying it all! We also memorized a few cute tactics to refocus the group, whether this it's a clapping pattern or breathing exercise to calm the kids down, quiet their little mouths, and bring their attention forward.

It is important for us to wrap-up the lesson plan and ask them questions about things they learned. We’re testing out a few ways to do this to see which is more effective – will they respond more enthusiastically one-on-one or as a group? Will they actually be able to answer some of the questions posed to them? Examples: Individually, “can you trace the dinner you ate last night back to the soil?” As a group, “what are some of the behaviors you can do differently at home to make a difference?”
