When students walk around their neighborhood and see trash, they will pick them up and throw them in their appropriate areas.
We are constructing a box for our school. In this box we will collect german "Pfandflaschen" directly translatet to "deposit bottles". For every bottle you get in Germany 25cent back. These bottles will be recycled. We donate the money to Mary´s Meals. With 25cent you can support a child 5 days with food!

I plan to investigate the frequency and resolution of people's separation practices and how to solve this project in order to specifically implement this project.
We will create a sanctuary in the wooded area just behind our school. Again our goal is to create habitat that will provide shelter, food, and water to the animals that inhabit this area. Our students will be assisting with habitat preparation, building of shelter, food/water stations for various animals, and create a viewing area a short distance from the sanctuary for viewing and studying local wildlife. We are using recycled wood for most of this project, along with recycled materials as much as possible.
We offer educational activities to children and youth. These are advertised in schools, magazines and newpsapers, facebook, by word-of-mouth and by fliers in public spaces. There is a vast array of topics that go on around the year/s and parents and teaches phone our office to book a topic for a certain day and time. • Saving seeds for the future • The Web of Life – a game - Jenga and string • Garden Warriors – identifying pests and disease and what to do about controlling them naturally • Guerrilla Gardening – seed bombs • Propagating plants from seeds and slips • Using your senses – taste, smell, feel, hear, see • Be a water-wise kid - how to make water go a long way • How does Nature conserve water – the Water Cycle. Magic of the water game. • Weird and wonderful water wildlife – snail eggs/planarians/whirly gig beetles, pond skaters, mosquito larvae, dragonfly larvae, mayflies, fish. Life near the surface • Looking at the life cycle of an insect in our garden. Make a dragonfly/or any other insect mask • Make a hot box/hay box • Natural Predators in our garden • How plants travel Eating the best food posssible - eating raw Spouting and microgreens Fermented foods and much, much more These is a charge for each of these workshops, but we are busy looking for sponsorships for children in the underprivileged schools in our city so that they may also attend them
We will build a garden in the back yard of the school that is fenced to keep out the deer that are prevalent eaters here, with raised beds to be used for planting in the spring of 2018. The garden will be built by parent volunteers from our school, including members of the newly formed Green Committee. The design for the garden will be a collaborative effort between parents, teachers, and children.
To be successful in the world and the work place students must have 21st century skills. These skills include communication, collaborations, creativity, and critical thinking. Project based learning is an engaging way for students to achieve these skills. Students will research real world problems based on their Georgia Standards, then create a solution for those problems. Students will also be able to access recyclables and consumables to create prototypes of projects that will solve real world problems.
People in America use over 500 million straws per day. Plastic straws are hard to clean and they use tons of non-renewable resources so once they are used, people don’t want to use them again resulting in tons of straws getting in our oceans. My goal is to increase the number of people using reusable and paper straws, and decrease the number of people using plastic straws. I hope to have some restaurants give out paper straws or none at all, and educate people about plastic in the ocean and how to find good reusable straws. By not using plastic straws, recycling other plastics and educating the community on this issue, we are making the world a better place by not using plastic straws.
