The garden project will help the nature.
Plant wild flowers that are neonicotinoids free saving the bees. neonicotinoid is what kills bees. It poisons them and spreds easily and stays in plants seeds and stays forever.
my project will reduce fear of reptiles and instead make them loved. how i will do it is, i will go to local pet stores,buy as many reptiles as i can, then go to the shelter i run and invite lots of people to have reptile interactions.
My first class is Monday in an indigenous village, where I will learn what the participants/students hope to gain from this course, and give a talk on the scientific method, together we will brain storm research we can undertake!
We are currently working to open up space for new trees and our future interpretative trail. In collaboration with the neighboring campus of the University of Puerto Rico and its professors and students , we will design and build the trail. Students, parents and teachers will work together to plant the new trees and create a new set of garden beds as part of our Tropical Food Forest. Some trees have been donated as well as the tools used in both projects.
We are inviting all of the families in our homsechool cooperative and the members of the Boys and Girls Club where we meet weekly to add to our Roots and Shoots "Making a Difference" chain. It is Roots and Shoots goal to do things that support our human community, the animal community and the environment. Each time anyone participates in an activity that accomplishes one of those goals we are going to invite them to add it to our chain. It is a good way to see how every individual makes a difference. We are going to display the completed chain at our showcase at the end of this semester.
-Sending a letter to companies who produce products with 6 pack rings to educate them on the dangers -Writing an article for the local newspapers, educating people about the damage of litter -Photo-shoot with stuffed animals with 6-pack rings around their necks
My project will include/begin with my Roots and Shoots group advertising for people at my high-school to bring in their old electronics which will be collected in collection boxes throughout the school and in our student center bringing awareness to our cause amongst the community to then have the items be recycled.
Our goal is to have a event which would be held outside and since it geared more towards the younger generation we would have different tables for different activities. And everything would be centered on rainforests and the nature. This would be to make their experience fun and enjoyable while learning about an important subject.
Our students will create and present engaging lessons for younger kids that teach them about environmental topics. We will have 10-15 booths run by student groups of 6-10 students each. Each booth will promote or educate a different topic that will educate kids about environmental topics. Example of past topics are listed below. Our students (grades 9-12) research each of these topics, develop a short lesson, create informational sheets and posters, create a script and talking points, gather materials, and practice. A small committee of our Green Team club advertises to the Arcadia community and all the schools by making flyers, posting announcements in bulletins, reaching out to all of our districts schools, and posting to social media including facebook, twitter, and instagram. This committee designs and prints the passport to be used by all of the volunteer groups and organizes the other campus clubs (Sierra, Campus Environmentalists, Red Cross, Affinity for Animals, and Kare4Kids) in 3 preparation and planning meetings before the LAEEF event. Examples of booth topics: IPM Ladybugs, Preying Mantis, mosquito fish oh my Aquatic Animals and ecosystems (fish, snails, elodea, newts, tadpoles) Native and Endangered animals - Desert Tortoise, Big Horn Sheep, Rosy Boa, Birds? Natural Disasters (Climate Change increasing flood/hurricanes/etc) Diseases and Environmental Justice (Disease prevention in developing world) Wind Eneregy (Make pinwheels) Decomposition (Worm Composting) - Kare4Kids Club Seed Bombs (Native plants that attract pollinators) Watter Bottle Hydroponics (No room - No problem! Grow veggies indoors) Current and Alternative Energies (Power for the future!) -Campus Environmentalists Not Everything that looks like trash goes in the trash! (Sorting your trash) Campus Environmental Tragedy of the commons - Goldfish Activity
