We will assist by making signs and posters. We will talk to our families and neighbors and spread the word (maybe even look for a Helping Hand). We have learned mapping skills on Google Maps. Working as a Team has taught us that when we put our minds and efforts to things, we CAN make them better and get the job done!

The students will create a folk art inspired clay sculpture or paintings of a chosen endangered animal. Prior to creating their clay sculptures, the students will learn all about endangered animals and possible solutions to save these animals by raising funds and donation them to the World Wild Life Fund, ASPCA (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) and Jane Goodall Institute. Each student will select one endangered animal to research through visits to our school library. In groups based on their chosen animal, students will work together to create a poster about their endangered animal; spreading awareness to their school and community. The students completed posters, paintings and clay sculptures will be available for sale in exchange for a donation at our school’s fundraising events. Proceeds from the fundraisers will be donated to the World Wild Life Fund and Jane Goodall Institute.

We raised money through a bake sale and a change jar to adopt a wildlife animal through the Defenders of Wildlife Foundation! In order for us to adopt this penguin we gradually collected change throughout a few weeks and at the end of February we hosted a bake sale to earn the rest of the money that is needed. We decided as a class we wanted to make baked goods and sell them throughout Once Upon A Time. Each wildlife adoption and gift is symbolic and your donation will be used where needed to help protect their wildlife and wild lands. Adopting this wildlife animal will be immediately put toward a great cause! With the money we raise as a classroom, we get our own personalized adoption certificate for Sprinkles, a penguin animal fact sheet, a wildlife activity book, and our own baby penguin to take care of in our classroom!

In the middle of 2014-2015 school year, Riverfield Roots & Shoots students researched and planned how to build a small chicken coop. They planned how to sell the eggs, what supplies and food the chickens would need, along with keeping them safe from birds of prey. The students presented their plan to the administration and faculty. The project was approved and the chicken coop was built. The students then measured a plot of barnyard land for the area for the chickens to roam, dug all the post holes, and fenced it in for the chicken coop and hens.

This year's Chimp Enrichment Necklace project was very successful. We spent 2 group meetings making about 60 necklaces of dried fruit and cheerios, strung together with jute string. The people at Chimps, Inc. sent us photos and a video of the chimps enjoying our gift. It feels great to make the lives of these friends better. We are all much more aware of the issues around people's use and abuse of animals

The community will be invited to this event on Earth Day, April 22nd. A short presentation will introduce the project and four easy ways anyone can help bees, as well as give some information about the native bee house in the library's community garden. Then the Way to Bee! Worker Bees will host fun hands-on activities and a display, including games about bee communication through smell (pheremones) and dance (honey bee dance), a honey making activity where participants pretend to be a busy bee gathering "nectar" (water) with their "proboscis" (eyedropper) and "pollen" (yellow pompoms) with their "pollen baskets" (little baskets) from specially designed "flowers." They will also be shown how to make wildflower seed bonbons to plant wherever some native wildflowers are needed to feed the bees.

We will put the money we raise from the notecards towards one of these organizations. We want to help offset the veterinary bills to help spay and neuter the animals and help them find forever homes. Our basic timeline: 1) Members of our community are currently drawing and submitting their endangered animal pieces. The deadline is April 25th 2) Then, we will make the actual notecards which will take about 2 weeks 3) Next, we will sell the notecards at our anual Field Day in May and during our school's grandparent day. 4) Finally, we will donate the funds to an organization by the end of the school year.

The mission of this project is to Educate, Legislate, Populate! That is, educate the public, especially youth, about the importance of bees, the hardships they are facing, and how we all can help through presentations, workshops, and fun learning activities at public events. By working with local and state legislators, legislate bee-friendly changes to laws or regulations and work to support laws that help the bees and those who work on their behalf. And populate the state, and maybe beyond, with healthy bee populations that will be attracted to wild bee houses built for them, native bees placed in suitable locations via cocoons, informed bee helpers who will find their Way to Bee and do it, and suitable forage that will be planted through the wildflower seed balls and bee waterer instructions.
