My class last year started making bottle bricks. My class, this year, has started making bottle bricks, along with every other 4th and 5th grade class at Superior Intermediate (my school) and Erie Intermediate (the school on the same campus, across the courtyard). All classes will make bottle bricks, for the foundation of the bench from now until March 2018. All classes will then build the bench in April 2018. My class, along with other classes are collecting plastic bottles and bags to make the bottle bricks. Camille, from Kids for Positive Change, just presented the Sharks & Sea Turtles Program, to my 4th graders on Friday, Sept. 8th. My students are so excited about saving sharks and sea turtles and they now understand how plastic bottles, bags and plastic pieces harm sharks, sea turtles and other marine life! Our action time has started and will continue! We are all so excited about creating and building our Earthbench!

Students have already started to "take action" for the Earthbench project. The Kids for Positive Change presentations about Sharks & Sea Turtles and Parrots & Backyard Birds, taught students about the problems these species are facing, with a focus on plastic bags, bottles, pieces and straws. Students chose creating and building an Earthbench for their Classroom-Community Action Assignment! Last school year (2016/2017), 85, 4th grade students, from the Kids for Positive Change Flagship Project, started making bottle bricks (plastic bottles stuffed with plastic pieces and plastic bags). Now, 5th graders, these students, along with all of the 4th grade classes and remaining 5th grade classes (572 total) have started working on the Earthbench Project by collecting materials and bottle bricking in the classroom, in art classes, at home...even while waiting for the bus! Step by Step Action: 1.) Kids for Positive Change has been working with the school Art Teacher to design the bench. The bench will be made in the shape and likeness of a dragon, the school system's mascot (Lakeside Dragons). 2.) With the design in place, Kids for Positive Change has reached out to Earthbench.org organizers, seeking guidance on how best to construct the bench, using bottlebricks, straw, clay, sand and cement. 3.) Teachers, students and community members and the Founder of LEADERship Ashtabula County, have started to collect plastic bags, plastic pieces and bottles for the bottle bricks. 4.) Collection bins for plastics will be established in both Superior and Erie Intermediate Schools by Sept. 30th, if not sooner 5.) Students have started and will continue to make bottle bricks (the foundation of the bench) from Sept. 2017-March 2018. 6.) 4th & 5th grade students will build the bench, using the bottle bricks as a foundation, staring April 2018, with the help from an experienced builder. 7.) 6th grade students will contribute to the Earthbench, by making the teeth and spin of the dragon, out of recycled materials 8.) The Earthbench will be "unveiled" on Earth Day 2018, or in May 2018, on our Kids for Positive Change Celebration Day! 9.) The Earthbench creating, building and unveiling will be documented for the school newsletter, website and local paper, ensuring community involvement and sharing of knowledge!

We contacted Hose2Habitat to ask for help connecting with zoos and then met with Hose2Habitat and zookeepers from Cape May Zoo and Elmwood Park Zoo, which are close to our community in North Wales, PA. We will work with Hose2Habitat and keepers to identify needs of the animals and use STEM and other skills to create solutions by recycling items to keep them out of landfills. We will know if we are successful if the animals like and use what we make. The keepers at the zoos will tell us when the items we make are in with the animals and we can take pictures and videos to share with Roots and Shoots.

We will start by finding ways to help in our own community by participating in beach and waterway clean ups. We will grow the effort by raising awareness and inviting others to join in. We will use art, sewing and writing to get our message across and fund raise. We will create our own reusable sandwich and snack bags that can take place of hundreds plastic bags. Our young group members will help inspire other young people in their schools and communities through art and through action.

We will drive to the back of Steiner Ranch and pick up/recycle the trash we find.

Our foster home takes in abandoned kittens from local shelters and raises them in a home environment until they reach the adoptable age of 8 weeks. We find forever homes for the kittens and begin the cycle again. As funding increases, more litters may be brought to the home at one time. The capacity for care in our 6 room house is 24 at any one time.

Our project will educate and inspire Form 1-4 students on wildlife and environmental conversation efforts. Our club will meet after school twice a week to brainstorm ideas and learn farming techniques. We will hold discussions about the importance of Tanzania's wildlife and discuss ways to promote awareness in order to protect our animals.

I have been collecting wine corks from friends, family and neighbors. I collected over 1500 wine corks and sold them on Ebay. The money I earned from selling my corks, I sent to Save the Chimps Foundation in Fort Pierce, Florida. My funds have been used to purchase bananas, blankets, laundry soap and toys for the chimps who live at the sancutary.
