All GREEN Schools projects

We have set up a station with a bin to collect used batteries. Another bin for used printer cartridges. We advertised to the school community in our weekly newsletter and in the school newspaper.
We hope to add used cellphones to this station and have found an organisation which will give cash in exchange for old cell phones so we can fundraise at the same time!

As a result of a school wide waste audit a 3 bin composter was built on our school grounds. The entire school population now participates in composting and collection bins are in all classrooms and common areas. Twice weekly members of the Green Team brings the compost to the outdoor bins. Green Team members as well as other students stir the compost to aerate, monitor green to brown ratios...

Juniper Elementary - Thompson

Project type:

One student chose to focus on the bat during a structured mammal inquiry. He taught the class that bats "see with their ears," and we consolidated learning about echolocation and a little bit about predator/prey relationships by playing the game Bat & Moth outside.
