Each child will create a "Starfish-Respect for All Living Things" scrapbook that will feature their responses to all activities with photos, articles, essays, reflections, book reviews and much more. They will invite the public to respond to their blog posts, videos, psa's and hopefully, receive responses to their letter writing campaigns and petitions. And we hope to raise a lot of $$$ with our musical fundraiser, palm oil free bake sale and sale of class magazine. They will continually self assess their learning with frequent personal reflections, partner activities and Socratic Seminar style class discussions that will take place throughout the process.
Each grade in our school is adopting a group of Community Helpers. Each grade will design and create a game made from recycled materials based on the Community Helper's profession.

Each group will be honored and will play the games with the students, thereby building a positive and playful experience together.
