Our project will teach kids that they can come together in their communities and plant seeds in their homes or even in their schools. We have asked our classmates in school and at home to help us gather recyclable bottles and yogurt containers. After we collected, we sorted, cut holes for the water to drain, and even added string to some of the planters. In the end, we will attend a harvest festival and get kids and family members involved and do a hands on activity. We will assist the kids in making their own little planter to have in their homes. The kids who participate in this we learn that doing things like having little planters we help us in having fresh air and it would look beautiful in a home.

I will only have one day in the classroom with these students so we will need to work quickly! My idea is to use the melody of a popular song that everyone knows and change the lyrics - I will have some recording equipment with me so by the end of my time with them we should be able to make some recordings. Then I will complete the song and send it back to the class so they can share it with their community!

Each month we engage our school community in conversation about air quality by posting a related question. Students can enter their estimate/answer for a chance to win a small gift card to a local bike store. Roots and Shoots members announce each month's question and answer during morning school announcements. By holding this contest we are hoping to get kids thinking about what they can do to improve air quality. We are holding various fundraisers to purchase additional bike racks for our school and town to promote bike usage. We are hosting a bike riding event in our town to teach people how to ride a bike safely. We hope this will get more people in our community riding bikes.

This project will take place at the Langley School and we will start recycling about December 15. The project will be completed at the end of the school year. We will be putting bins into each area where snacks and lunches are eaten. Students will be able to easily recycle their drink pouches there. Our group will collect the drink pouches and send them to the recycling organization.

My co-teacher and I are implementing a combined Roots & Shoots and Youth Service America (YSA) project in all of our Living Environment CTT classes (120 students) throughout the Human Impact Unit taught in April-May. We are having students identify the main cause of carbon emissions in the community using the mapping technique developed by Roots & Shoots. We are then having students write and implement community action plans in order to reduce carbon emissions in their community. Finally, students will be graded according to YSA’s 4C model of Career and Workforce Readiness: Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, and Critical Thinking.
