We will find Monarch caterpillar eggs on the underside of milkweed leaves June to September, take the caterpillars home and raise them. Give caterpillars, information and instructions to anyone who seems interested. We will help spread milkweed seeds in the forgotten and unused spaces in the city.

Our students will be building bat houses to distribute and set up around the community. This will allow for a safe place for the bats to live while the community grows. Securing a place for the bats to live while the bats help the community by pollinating plants, fertilizing soil, and providing natural mosquito control!

We’ve been documenting the amount and types of litter we find on the beach. It is our hope to see a decline as we continue our efforts. Aside from a decline in trash, we hope to see an increase in beach clean-up participation, and an increase in the well being of wildlife and healthy ecosystems. For example, we have been thrilled to see an increase in Monarch butterflies this year at the beaches. As we do the clean-ups, others will hopefully feel inspired to reduce, re-use, recycle, dispose of waste responsibly, and protect wildlife.

Getting engaged: We will investigate what is a satellite, which materials are used in order to build one and why are the necessary for Earth sciences. Community mapping: We will interview people in our island and ask them how the felt when they saw the oil spill and how it affected their lives and we will write an article expressing their opinion. We will contact the environmental organization of Salamina (PERIVOS) in order to give us a talk about the environmental impact of the oil spill. Taking action: we will build our own satellites, using LEGO We Do 2.0 , we will write code in order to program to move around our inflated Earth. We will try to find data (pictures from the Copernicus / Sentinel satellites) in order to investigate how large was the oil split. Celebrate: We will present our work during the “Astronerds saving the Earth” classroom party.

We would benefit from a small set of binoculars for students to add to their toolkit, along with the microscopes and hand lenses we already have for close-up observations. This will allow students to learn to identify their natural neighbors, and get to know and love them.

Students engage in monthly cooking classes that focus on seasonal and healthy recipes. The 5th graders were eager to reduce their carbon emissions and support local farmers after learning about how they can reduce their impact on the environment. With this grant money, we will supplement our grocery store produce with more local ingredients, calculating the miles saved for each ingredient.

In January, the children will study about ways to reuse, reduce, and recycle plastic. They will involve their families by providing them with reusable canvas bags to use when shopping. The children will each decorate one canvas bag, with symbols or pictures of nature items. The earth and some of its resources will be items suggested for the children to paint on their bags. When the bags are dry, the children will take them home with a note to parents explaining how the children have learned about reducing the use of plastic and asking them to keep this bag in their car to use when shopping at local stores.
