Develop an afterschool club for students who will discover the role of keystone species conservation and the protection of ecosystems. Students will have the opportunity to meet with local non-governmental organizations and conservation groups involved in wildlife preservation. Each group session of 5-7 students will agree upon a wildlife protection action, learn about the role and importance of that species in the environment and the threats and challenges they face, and develop an education campaign for the community for the protection for that species.

This project will increase the amount of ground cover in a denuded area that is currently part of a larger park area. It is treated poorly because it looks like a waste land. We will be doing earthwork to create rainwater harvesting basins, planting native trees, grasses, and shrubs, removing invasive species, and creating an outdoor learning space.

Wildlife is abundant in my area but the numerous storms have driven them away so bringing back resources for them. The creation of food, water and shelter for the many bird and rodent population will increase the wildlife, helping propagate the indigenous plants.

We have a small pollinator garden. We see many bees and butterflies including monarchs! We would like to expand our garden by planting more habitat. We would like to make it more of an exhibit so that our visitors could learn about the pollinators and how to create their own gardens. And finally, we would like to use our garden for science by participating in a research project on milkweed.

Our Physical Education class will use Angle Ball to teach defense and offense strategies based on the National PE Standards. We will use this game as a "station rotation" game where students will be divided into smaller groups to give all students a higher success rate and allow them to learn a new game while rotating to familiar games within a class period.

According to our most recent beach cleanup along the shores of Lake Erie, on Sept. 16, 2017, over 800 plastic straws where collected in just 3 hours! Many of our families attended this cleanup and are well-aware of the plastic straw dilemma. In addition, Kids for Positive Change Educator and Founder, Camille Licate, facilitated individual classroom programs about sharks, sea turtles and marine ecosystems to our 562, 4th and 5th grade students, in early September 2017. During this program, students learned how plastic straws, bags, bottles and balloons negatively impact marine life, and, more importantly, how what happens on the shores of Lake Erie can impact the Atlantic Ocean. Currently, students are working in Think Tank Teams and are researching marine species, the problems they are facing and coming up with plans of action to help the species. Some of our TTT are specifically focused on plastic pollution in our oceans, with a focus on plastic straws. We are implementing a plan of action, developed by one of our Think Tank Teams: This Plan of Action involves creating fact sheets about plastic straws and the negative impacts they have on marine life and visiting every local restaurant to "pitch" the "So Long Straw Campaign." Using raffle tickets, students will explain to restaurant owners and the city council, how patrons who opt out of a plastic straw will receive a raffle ticket. Once a week, there will be a drawing, and a patron can win a free drink, dessert or appetizer. For patrons that prefer a straw, another local organization, LEADERship Ashtabula County, has offered to donate paper straws to all local restaurants. Our "next steps" involve a meeting with the City Manager to put the plan of action in motion. Students will begin to create information sheets and flyers and practice how they will pitch the campaign to restaurant owners. We will have the students call the restaurant owners and set up a time to speak. Then, we will accompany a few students to the meetings. Our goal is to have the campaign in place, with the raffle ticket incentive, by or before January 2018, We will also film the students during the phases of this campaign and create a short video to share with our community and social media. Our goal with this video is to inspire other students to take action in their communities too!
