Environmental Superhero Projects

Each year, the children in my class do special monthly projects with an environmental focus. As a school, we emphasize being "green" in many ways, but there is always more to be done. In the classroom, we do everyday things like recycling, using both sides of the paper, and keeping the playground litter-free - but we will also be environmental superheroes by doing these special projects on a monthly basis.

Families who were with me last year will recognize some of these, and some are new. If you have an idea for a future superhero project, let me know!

September – farmers market scavenger hunt

October – start our new vermicomposting station in classroom – these worms will eat our scraps and make lovely worm castings for the garden!

November – junk mail challenge – collect and weigh all junk mail that comes to our houses all month, and reuse much of this paper to make pretty paper bowls

December – annual "bake sale for birdies" - proceeds will be used to sponsor a raptor at Leslie Science and Nature Center

January –make
 snow ice cream, weather permitting

February – make valentines for the our bird friends, go on nature walk

March – make own "green" cleaning solutions for spring cleaning
