Our original idea was to make a completely recycled tree so we could educate the public on deforestation. We then branched out into Leaves for Trees. By reaching out to Whole Foods we secured sponsorship for our project. For every leaf someone put on our tree, Whole Foods would donate 1 dollar to Roots and Shoots. We then donated the money to Plant-it 2020, an organization that plants 1 indigenous tree for every 1 dollar donated.

The first step in the process was to complete a long survey of our school (Tom McCall Upper Elementary- Forest Grove) covering the topics of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle | Integrated Pest Management | Indoor Air Quality | Non-Toxic Products. We first had to get approval of the Administration Site Council. When this was done, we formed a committee of 5 members to interview our counselor to get the needed information.

teach ecology and have students create a painting that represents a relationship in nature. This is about human impact on the environment. At the end I will ask students to make a commitment to DOING something to protect the environment.

We plan on planting trees and Girls And Boys Club, Girls Inc., and possibly Boyd Hill Preserve.

By planting tree we hope to help the human and animal community as well as the environment. By planting trees we provide shade, air and beautification of the landscape for the human community. These trees will be home to native birds such as the Screech Owl, Northern Flicker, Osprey, Bald Eagle. For the environment it improves the quality of the air we breath. We plan on planting trees and Girls And Boys Club, Girls Inc., And possibly Boyd Hill Preserve.

I will only have one day in the classroom with these students so we will need to work quickly! My idea is to use the melody of a popular song that everyone knows and change the lyrics - I will have some recording equipment with me so by the end of my time with them we should be able to make some recordings. Then I will complete the song and send it back to the class so they can share it with their community!

An illustrated fictional story book written and illustrated by children for children living in Malaysia that inspires youth-inspired environmental and charitable good deeds big and small on a daily basis. Examples of current environmental disasters, their causes and some solutions will be used in a story that can inspire readers of all ages to take action. Book sale proceeds will go towards charities making a difference in Malaysia and Borneo based on the Roots and Shoots principles. In addition, School-based projects regarding anti-dengue campaign, local tree replanting/anti-flooding proposals to localised construction projects and funding children's homes/orphanages to be discussed as part of Jane Goodall school visit and year 6 term project at my children's school.

My co-teacher and I are implementing a combined Roots & Shoots and Youth Service America (YSA) project in all of our Living Environment CTT classes (120 students) throughout the Human Impact Unit taught in April-May. We are having students identify the main cause of carbon emissions in the community using the mapping technique developed by Roots & Shoots. We are then having students write and implement community action plans in order to reduce carbon emissions in their community. Finally, students will be graded according to YSA’s 4C model of Career and Workforce Readiness: Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, and Critical Thinking.
