The project will be sequential starting with school community, town, and then world. Learners will first learn what a community is and how they are a part of a larger group of people. Then taking what they know about their school community will apply towards their town. They will participate in a community mapping inventory to determine within the three areas: beautification, landscape, plants, and trees, and wildlife; how they can enhance the town they live in. Finally, after the mapping complete a project based on at least on of the three focuses. If possible connect with another second grade class to blog about their learning.

The experiences are held in rain and sunshine, mountains and forests, river waters and waterfall, oceans and seas where the children get to experience all possible flavours of nature. Experiences are conducted in the outskirts of Mumbai in locations like Karjat, Pali, Kamshet, Kolad, Palghar also giving the young minds, a glimpse of beautiful local Indian cultures. We do fun activities like - stick building, rock stacking, journey Stick, Organic farming, Forest art & games garland making, participating in farming, cooking and cleaning; adventurous stuff like trekking, rock climbing, river swimming etc. Participants are encouraged to record their experiences the old-school way for Children of Tribe journals; Based on modern and slightly worrying truth that the city kids learn to walk on even, concrete and carpeted surfaces. But when they are eventually faced with an uneven surface, they will be unwillingly out into danger as they do not know how to use the space and how to walk. With Children of Tribe, my wish is to feed onto a child’s innate need for risk but with reasonable risk in order to prevent them finding greater risks for themselves at later stages of life. The other driving principle of Children of Tribe experiences is Sustainable thinking & sustainable living. These experiences are steeped in No Plastic; Consume Less; Give Back concepts. So, Children of Tribe provides experiences which are fun in an unplugged way! Just for a few hours, say bye bye to ‘gadgets & e-play’ instead, get your hands dirty in mud.

I will research a recipe and make cupcakes that have ingredients that do not harm chimpanzees or the environment. I will have a craft for children to take and make at home that will teach them about the chimpanzee. I will have books and information available to library patrons so they can learn how to help the chimpanzees.

We will plant an aromatic garden this summer. The location is a path that many schoolchildren use to walk to school each day. The hope is to have a beautiful surprise for everyone to see and enjoy when they return to school in September. We will add a hammock/swing between the two trees, eye catching trinkets, sparklies, painted rocks and more in the 'fairy garden' tradition.

Our project will demonstrate to young children the benefits of group work. Our project will teach young children that their food comes from the earth. Our project will reinforce the importance of children's connection to nature. How We Will Do It We will discuss and problem solve humane ways to keep the ground squirrels and other animals out of the vegetable gardens. We will make a map of the garden plotting the sun exposer of the different garden boxes throughout the day. We will research and determine which herbs and vegetables will grow best in which garden boxes. We will research native plants and incorporate several in the gardens.

When we were deciding how we wanted to help our local environment, one of the students (4 years old) said, "We use a lot of paper at school for drawing. I think we should plant a tree since paper comes from trees!" We decided that we would plant a tree on our playground as a way of saying "thank you" to the trees for providing paper and for allowing us to breathe clean air (which is especially important in big cities like NY!) I wanted the students to get experience with fundraising and working toward a goal. The students came up with a plan to have an Ice Cream Fundraiser and luckily for us, it was a beautiful, sunny day! We made over $300! This allowed us to purchase a Cherry Blossom Tree for our playground. Finally, I wanted the students to "get their hands dirty" and help plant the tree. On a rainy, New York day, the students worked hard to dig a hole for our new Cherry Blossom.
