In a food web, everything depends on everything else. A single change can disrupt or even destroy an entire ecosystem. We learned that bee populations are in decline. Without bees to pollinate our plants, we could have a big problem on our hands. That is why our 4th grade classes have decided to work together to be at least a small part in revitalizing bee populations by building a bee sanctuary. Each class has taken on a specific role in the project, and our focus is on making the sanctuary an inviting place for students and community members to visit so they can enjoy nature and learn more about the importance of protecting pollinators. We will define paths in the sanctuary, build simple benches for seating, and create signs that help to educate visitors to the sanctuary.

We have been learning about colony collapse and how bee populations are rapidly decreasing around the world. We want to play a role in the solution to this problem by planting pollination gardens at our school. We have studied the types of plants that appeal to bees and when they bloom since it is important that the bees have access to appropriate plants throughout the year. This is our class's part in the whole 4th grade project to design and build a full bee sanctuary that will include all the components bees need to thrive. It will also be a beautiful addition to our school grounds and our community.

This year, we have been studying how a single change to an ecosystem can disrupt the entire food web. We became very concerned when we learned that bee populations were declining around the world because without bees, plants don't get pollinated! Our grade level has decided to build a bee sanctuary at our school that will cater to mason bees, which are safe bees, but also good pollinators. Our contribution to the bee sanctuary will be to design and build bee "baths" where bees can get water. We will also include solar powered water pumps in our fountains because we know that stagnant water can be a breeding ground for mosquitoes, which we are trying to avoid.

Our school has lots of gardens where we grow vegetables and flowers. Unfortunately, we have learned that bee populations, which are necessary for pollination and plant growth, are declining around the world. We have researched this issue, and our grade level has decided to plan and build a bee sanctuary behind our school to bring in more mason bees, which do not sting but are excellent pollinators. Our class's contribution will be building bee "hotels" for mason bees and placing them in our bee sanctuary.

I will plant native Texas flowers that will attract hummingbirds and butterflies, which will give them a safe place to eat and rest.

Our project will create shelter, food and give a water source to the bird population.

Our project would add a small botanical garden to an existing park. This would add a variety of vegetation and become a fun spot that the public could visit. Through signs and facts about each plant in the garden people could increase their knowledge of the environment and learn what changes they could make in their lives to better benefit the environment. It would create a family friendly attraction that would benefit the existing environment and prevent future construction and destruction of our beautiful ecosystem.

We will clean up any trash throughout the land and help to ensure the creeks can flow without pollution and provide a sustainable home for wildlife.

Our project will provide birds with food which in turn will benefit their natural habitat. We will complete this by hanging up a bird feeder in the area in which the construction is happening. We believe this construction caused many birds and animals at that to flee from their original habitat.

As part of our project we will go around local parks and plant flowers and seeds in different areas.
