Kids for Positive Change

The Problem

My wish is to REACH, TEACH and INSPIRE my students to take positive action for animals and the planet, starting in their own backyard. I wish to empower them to honor their bright ideas and passion to create change, into positive classroom and community outreach for the betterment of all!

Our Plan

Students will engage in three interactive powerpoint presentations which focus on certain endangered or threatened animals and the environment. They will then be given the opportunity to take positive action with guidelines offered to them. They will also have the choice to implement their own bright ideas to help animals and the environment. An example: Research bee and butterfly friendly flowers and having a school fundraiser to buy the seeds. In the spring, students will plant the bee and butterfly friendly flowers in a garden in the schoolyard. They will educate other classes about what they are doing and they will have opportunity to write to the local paper explaining to the community about the garden and how everyone can use natural alternatives to toxic pesticides -- pesticides that not only harm bees, butterflies and other animals, but pesticides that can also harm humans.
