We will not only learn about water and our watershed, but we will get to teach our community about the importance of this resource.

We will write a letter to our county to see if we could get permission to stencil the sewer grates that lead to lakes. We want to paint the words "No Dumping, Leads to Waterway" by the sewers.

We will do a community map to see what environmental or community problems we have in the Crosslake area. We will then develop themes for display boards throughout the school year. We will change the display board every few months.

We will participate in service learning course while cleaning the local parks. We will promote Earth Day Awareness and the importance of Recycling, Energy Conservation and Water Conservation. We will work with local community leaders, councilman and state officials to get the news out on Saving our Earth!

Our project will engage at least 50 more volunteers in the community work our school does in and around the neighborhood. We will be able to do this by giving the participants the necessary protective wear that they will need for our projects so they do not have to provide it themselves.

Our project is to grow vegetables in an aquaponics system. Goldfish will also grow to help produce the proper amounts of nitrogen to cycle through the system and help sustain the growth of our plants. We will complete water testing for nutrients and pH levels to make sure our plants and fish are happy and healthy.

K-8th grade students will research, design and create educational and entertaining games about the benefits and practice of reducing waste, reusing materials and recycling to keep waste from our landfills. These games will be created completely from recycled materials and will be facilitated by the students. The games will be played by the public at a community event in May 2016.

This project consists of a series of 6 gardening classes throughout the summer where we demonstrate and engage youth ages 2-8 in planting, growing and eating foods such as: peas, carrots strawberries and melons. Each tot receives a 2'x2' area in a community garden plot to plant seeds and harvest their own food. We also have a strawberry patch where tots learn to pick and eat fresh, sweet & juicy strawberries! Each tot starts off the season by painting their name on a brick to mark their spot in the garden. We offer fresh snacks, usually donations from other gardeners, every class. We also have a short story about planting and growing food at the end of each class :)

Students will research the historical changes of their local community and create a timeline starting from the early 20th century to the present. This timeline will contain data (population change related to humans, wildlife and plant life), in addition to focusing on the impact the developments has had in their local environment (pollution, shortage of essential natural resources, animal extinction, etc.). Students will create action plan in the form of a PSA, which will include findings during the unit as well as an action plan.

In our science notebooks, we created an outline based on several published works. We will work-out a day in school, a day on vacation and a weekend day's use of resources, both natural and human-made. Working with our partners, and ultimately our whole class, we will set to reduce what we use and try to make this a life-long goal!
