All About the B’s: Birds, Bees & Butterflies

The Problem

Our wish is to protect habitats, restore ecosystems, and regenerate sustainable gardens for birds, bees, and butterflies. The students of Room 32 recognized the importance of supporting birds, bees, and butterflies in our community as well as our global community. Through this project, we hope to inspire our fellow classmates and our community to take small actions such as adding a bird, bee, or butterfly house to their yard as well as planting flowers and plants that attract these little critters.

Our Plan

Students will research, design, create and up-cycle bird, bee, and butterfly houses out of readily available materials and/or recyclable materials. In addition, students will research, plan, and create gardens in our school yard and community that promote bird, bee, butterfly habitats. In the spring, we hope to host a sale to sell the plants that we grow, houses that we created as well as hand out informational and DIY pamphlets on birds, bees, and butterflies and their habitats. The proceeds from this sale will be donated to support a local group in our community/city. The students of Room 32 will collaborate, mentor and teach fellow classrooms at our school to create awareness and promote small actions to protect birds, bees, and butterflies habitats and ecosystems as well as inform them on plants they can plant at home to support our little friends.
