In this project, the students will be divided into six groups to research about the food wasted per day. Similarly, they will take interview with kitchen staffs and other staffs to learn where the waste food go and what happens with them. In the end, students will educate other students through a drama performance during their lunch break.

Ideally, we want to collect the uneaten and unwanted food from breakfast and lunch on campus that would be thrown away otherwise. This food would be kept in a separate fridge in our cafeteria and then be transported to a local nonprofit and given to those who need it.

My students and I would like to continue and expand upon our first grade garden. We have 2 small raised beds outside, and we would like to make both a little larger. We will start seeds indoors and transplant them into the garden in the spring. The goal is for the garden to be a place where students and their families can harvest healthy and free food. Students will keep a pictorial and a written journal describing their experiences during all parts of the project. Students will be taught the various duties and activities that are involved in maintaining a garden. They will learn academic skills that relates to our first grade standards of plant needs and weather. During harvest time, we will keep collect data to see how often parents and students are harvesting, and whether or not we have enough food to go around.

We are worried about food waste, and so we are going to pilot a compost program in one of the classrooms in our elementary school. Students will have an outdoor compost bin, but they will also have a smaller bin class to collect things like apple cores, banana peels, etc. Students will learn about the science and beneficial factors behind composting and will observe results such as decrease in classroom trash. Students will then work to educate the student body and then hopefully implement a school-wide composting policy. Students will learn about vermicomposting and educate others too!

My project will take place over the course of a semester and allow students to get points by using reusables in their homeroom classes. At the end of the year, the class with the most points will get a pizza party to celebrate their good efforts.

We would like build four compost bins (1 per third grade class). We want to create healthy soil by collecting biodegradable foods from our lunchroom. There will be a garden for our school, and we are in charge of fertilizing the soil with the material from our compost. The students design and manage the composting bins, and then collect data on the aggregate weekly weight.
