We already started with a brainstorm back in December. We are aiming to have it completed in May when it will go on display with an opening ceremony that will allow the students to meet local leaders.

We are currently undergoing a large classroom remodel to provide more local young learners the opportunity to enroll in our program and connect to nature while learning to care for our planet! We want to make a classroom that is environmentally friendly, using resources that are responsibly resourced or recycled. A large part of our remodel is focused on bringing the outdoors indoors so that our explorations can continue once inside the classroom walls. We plan to create a large discovery center area with space for students to observe elements of nature and record their observations within their personal nature journals.

After several brainstorming sessions we narrowed our idea down to recycling mismatched lost socks to create homemade snowmen (decorated with recycled materials) to deliver to the local retirement communities. The snowmen will be two-fold; a winter decoration stuffed with birdseed to be feed to wildbirds come the first day of spring!

We have been watching the master class 1-3 sections at a time over the past several months, when time allows. We discuss each section afterwards. This helps to build a solid foundation for our club!

We will start with cleaning out the pond, removing metals from the ground, and reallocating rubble to sculptural uses. Additionally we will renovate existing buildings into classrooms and art studios. Careful records of plant and animal species will be logged.

Students in the 4th and 5th grade at Whitlow Elementary School will regularly collect stream data on water pH, conductivity, temperature and dissolved oxygen. They will aggregate the data from a solar powered water quality probe with data collected using manual chemical kits. That data will be entered into the state data system which monitors streams all over the state of Georgia. Using nets they will sample the stream to see what life it supports. Our data will be used by scientists across the country.

Goal is to increase writing across the content area by introducing digital literacy activities. Each activity will follow the same general procedure. 1. Students will be introduced to a concept. Activity will take approximately 2 days. (Example for math: integers) 2. Students will practice and analyze concept. Activity will take approximately 3 days. (Example: hands-on activity) 3. Students will research and write about the concept. Activity will take approximately 5 days. (Example: research and write about math based careers) 4. Students will produce a podcast, vlog, or blog as a culminating assessment of understanding. Activity will take approximately 2 weeks. (Example: Vlog on real world use of integers)

Digitally literate students can judge, create, and convey information in the digital world. Creating 21st century learners who are digitally literate is a priority. I plan to have students use technology to enhance their writing skills by creating blogs, vlogs, and podcasts throughout content classes. I will use this money to help create a recording studio in our middle school, so the money will go toward microphones, padcasters, and other recording equipment. The recording studio will be used in cross curricular projects (with science and social studies). The topics will include the importance of reducing waste and reusing/recycling materials, human community and human condition (through the topic of the Holocaust and various other historical conflicts), and the importance of various species of wildlife (in different geographical locations).
