Our project will provide sanctuary for local wildlife, including but not limited to birds and insects. While we have some plants already that attract critters, we would like to incorporate more native plantings, which will also allow this to be a low water use yard. Our plan is to remove the remaining sections of lawn, and replace them with native grasses and flowers that would attract the bird, insect, and other local animal populations, incorporating the new plantings with the ones already established.

We will build birdhouses out of reusable items. In groups of 3-4 students we will plan, design, create and build birdhouses to hang in trees around our campus.

We are going to design, create, and build birdhouses out of reusable materials. In groups of 3-4 students, each group will create a birdhouse and hang it from a tree at our school. We hope to inspire others to do the same. This will help beautify our campus as well.

We will purchase beautiful flowers that attact butterflies and bees, at each child's home in a container. The children will take care of the flowers by nourishing them with water and plant food. Then they will wait for the butterflies and bees to appear!

I am going to create a team of people from my town. First, we are going to go door to door and ask people if they want to take action and save the bees. We will ask them to sign a petition saying they will not use harmful chemicals (pesticides, herbicides) on their property. We can also educate our neighbors about non-toxic methods to manage their yards. Second, we will go to town hall and ask to use public lands to plant bee gardens in the spring. A bee garden will include wildflowers, milk weed, bee homes, and a water bee bath with pebbles.

This project will allow for more meaningful inquiry with students at the middle school level, as the plot is on school grounds and is quickly accessible from the classroom. It will also allow for a connection between the community and the school, as the plot is accessible to the public from the street, and will include signage as well as some common plants community members may already know. We will have a variety of seating available for the public and students to utilize to best fit their needs. There is already a young plot on the grounds, but the funds for seating, bird feeders, and bee hotels is yet to be secured. I have local experts and craftsman who are available for quality assurance of all tangible parts brought into this area.

I will start by inviting the community to know Jane and her vision "Jane Goodall in Mexico " by including her in our "Green Intervention Day" which is an event to showcase the latest information regarding Global Warming, New Green Construction, Implementation of Sustainability on all Projects from Design Development The importance of eating Green Experience great vegetarian dishes from Mexico Buy Recycle Ornaments and Gifts from Recycle Products Artisans Recycle Methodologies and strategies for better cities

We have several campaign goals: 1. Organize a town-wide cleanup in the spring, following the success of our last cleanup 2. Distribute litter collection barrels around town 3. Implement smaller campaigns, such as a social media challenge to pick up 5 pieces of litter every day

The project will be sequential starting with school community, town, and then world. Learners will first learn what a community is and how they are a part of a larger group of people. Then taking what they know about their school community will apply towards their town. They will participate in a community mapping inventory to determine within the three areas: beautification, landscape, plants, and trees, and wildlife; how they can enhance the town they live in. Finally, after the mapping complete a project based on at least on of the three focuses. If possible connect with another second grade class to blog about their learning.
