Brooke Bell Service Learning Activity #2 1. For my service learning project, my group of fourth graders that I work with be helping their community and the environment through service learning. The students will host a recycling event throughout the semester to get students in their school recycle their goods instead of just throwing them away. At the end of the project, which is five weeks long, the students will get to go out for the main event, and plant a flower in their community park. They will reflect on how the environment is affected by plants, and how pollution is changing our environment and how they could take action. 2. Possible partner organizations include: Keep America Beautiful, Waste Management, and Future for Kids. 3. Type of service activities used: direct: the students will be doing direct work by planting a flower in their park. Indirect: Students will be learning in the classroom about the environment and how recycling helps the environment. The students will also learn about pollution and how pollution is affecting the earth (global warming). Researchbased: students will be given an assignment to research how they can help the community in their day to day life. They will read and take notes on simple ways to prevent global warming. They will also research statistics about recycling, the environment, and pollution. Advocacy: In order for students to collect recyclable materials, they will have to advocate to their peers about recycling and create posters to advertise their project. 4. The group of students I work with are in the fourth grade and are 9 and 10 years old. The subject we are focusing on are earth science and environmental science. Lessons involving math and the environment will be included in some class activities to help refresh the students in math. Section 2 1. Budget: a.
