I will create a video and project board and share it with around 52 kids in my fifth grade class. I will also post my video here to bring awareness to Roots and Shoots members from all over the world.
The students visiting the garden this week are in high school, so we want to test out our new Rainbow Ribbon Salad curriculum! This portion of the lesson will teach the value of “eating the rainbow” to get a variety of vitamins and nutrients in one’s diet. Our elevated curriculum will show older kids how to make healthier options in their everyday food choices. Specifically, they will be incorporating different plant parts on a home-made pizza as well as using all the colors of the rainbow to craft this delicious salad.
Our wish for this project is to increase awareness about the lack of shoes for many people in our community and with that awareness, hopefully there is a desire to partner with us to donate shoes and create an on-going dialogue about health, poverty and wellness.

For my project, my group is working to raise money to provide laptops for the school Doctor Pedro Joaquin Chamorro, located in Rivas, Nicaragua. The laptops are delivered in boxes of five, with each box costing $1250. This has been done in coordination with the non-profit organization One Laptop Per Child. In order to raise money, we have been reaching out to multiple educational organizations throughout the United States who are willing to make donations. I am very pleased with the progress my group has made, consisting of students from my school and from Norway! I will be leaving to meet with the Norwegian students in Norway on March 30. Through projects like this, we are working to make Global Goal #4: Quality Education a reality!
We will shape our garden into a place where birds and bees feel welcome and find a safe haven. With the intention to recreate a natural habitat, enriched with plants, flowers and waterfall,... that benefite their health and natural way of being. While enjoying the realization of this project as well as seeing the wildlife flourish, we also would like to give an example to inspire others to create their own B-Garden.
We are going to put on a fundraiser to raise money to help us get supplies to clean up the desert and plant new growth behind our school. We will need shovels to dig, soil, gloves, seeds and plants, and trash bags.
We will be raising money by hosting a board game night at our school. We want to raise money to purchase a rain barrel to collect water for our school to use on the plants because we live in the desert.
We will be building four bird houses for our school campus!
We will be putting on a food, clothes, and water drive at our school. We will also be putting together a bake sale in order to make a monetary donation to the Salvation Army.
