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.

To accomplish our project we will plant more grass on the bare spots and plant flowers that need very little maintenance and water. We will also clean up the area by pulling weeds, picking up sticks and trash. Our project will make that area look nicer for people to look at and enjoy.

Our project will give the birds around RHS a place to nest and a source of food, while recycling.

We have discussion with our lunch ladies to get approval for our donation boxes, then we will put a few brightly colored boxes scattered throughout the lunch area on tables. We will write what things can be donated in the boxes, then we will set up a partnership with an organization who would love to receive donated food. For the compost, we will set up a worm bin, get the brown materials and collect the greens from students at lunch. We will have a compost collection right next to the trash bin for students to put their organic food scraps. Then each day students will collect the food and put it in the worm bin. We will know if our campaign is successful if we reduce the amount of trash that leaves our school. We will collect data weekly on how many items were donated and how much compostable items were collected. Students will analyze that data and determine how successful we were.

We will keep a log of snacks given to our volunteers each week.

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.

We will start by finding ways to help in our own community by participating in beach and waterway clean ups. We will grow the effort by raising awareness and inviting others to join in. We will use art, sewing and writing to get our message across and fund raise. We will create our own reusable sandwich and snack bags that can take place of hundreds plastic bags. Our young group members will help inspire other young people in their schools and communities through art and through action.

Our group project will keep more bats from ruining houses and safer in their own houses.

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