Our campaign will be successful if students can accurately explain the importance of recycling/composting and are motivated to continue the work throughout the year and at home. We intend to purchase a worm composting bin(or 2) and associated materials as well as seeds/plants for the gardens.

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.

Our project will provide a collection point for neighbors to bring their fall leaves for composting. We have worked with our local schools to establish a collection point and coordinated youth groups to assist seniors in raking their fall leaves. We have arranged for a Master Composter to educate neighbors on the "Whys and Hows of Backyard Composting". Neighbors who compost can take donated leaves to their compost piles and the remaining leaves will be placed in a dumpster for composting at a local facility.

This project will allow students to examine wasted rain water locations on campus, research options to improve the use of this wasted water, as well as, design and implement functional environmental friendly solution on campus. Students will improve our garden experience by designing landscapes that harvest this excess rainwater.

This project will reduce the amount of plastic bags in the environment by reaching out to people at stores. We will stand outside of some stores handing out free reusable bags for people to use instead of the plastic bags. We have already done this at a ShopRite and Food Emporium, and we hope to go to even more places soon.

Environmental Awareness Campaigns: Students will plan and implement an Animal Extinction Campaign, a PLAWLKING Challenge- picking up litter while walking, a Tree Planting Fundraiser, and an Upcyle Campaign. Through these awareness campaigns, students will encourage action of many for variety of environmental and ecological issues. It is our wish to ignite stewardship in our community.

I have students create Power Point presentations to share what they've learned. We also complete pre and post tests after the field trips so we can collect data which tells us what the students have learned and why. I would use the grant money to buy plants for the garden. Parents and students help us maintain our garden. We also harvest our produce and make salads to share during our meetings.
