My project will be a year-long theme of The Great Outdoors. During our year together, my 5th grade students will spend the year learning about ecological and environmental issues: biodiversity, deforestation, and pollution. Outdoor learning and nature-based activities will be imbedded throughout the year. As we learn about these topics, students will participate in awareness campaigns; create an indoor and outdoor garden; and organize local clean ups. These activities will run throughout the year. As we learn, it is my hope that what the students learn will inspire them to tackle other conservation and environmental topics. Therefore, I would not be surprised if learners came up with other impactful activities to help their learning during this year. This Great Outdoors projects is important for my student population, as we live in a mostly city environment, and students have little connection to nature. I am already seeing their eyes widen with wonder as we venture out and connect with nature. Thank you for this opportunity.

We will target schools and events in South Florida and educate organizers about the perils associated with balloons. Even biodegradable balloons are environmental hazards and endanger wildlife. Through flyers, we hope everyone will realize that balloons really are dangerous and end up polluting the environment.

I am a young reporter for Bear essentials News. My goal for this project was for my team and I to meet and be inspired by Dr. Goodall. The lecture was interesting, inspiring and motivational. I learned about her grit as a young lady and determination and dedication to conversation of wildlife. Her mission to advocate and educate the world about the importance of taking care of our planet,ourselves and the wildlife that share it. I hope that my readers and subscribers will be inspired by Dr. Goodall the way I was.

We will inform as many people as we can about the harmfulness of straws. We will get in touch with local businesses and try our hardest to convince them to use compostable or reusable straws.

The second grade students will study the lives and messages of three important environmental conservationists and activists: Jane Goodall, Greta Thunberg, and Daphne Sheldrick. They will then write a variety of opinion peices to share their understanding of the important work these woman have done and continue to do. The second grade students will also learn about Earth Day and what it means to 'live green'. They will then write, illustrate, and share persuasive essays to inspire others to show compassion for our wonderful natural world.
