This year my 7th graders focused on ways to improve our planet. They began by looking at the United Nations Goals for Sustainable Development and figured out ways we could help in our community. At the end of our first semester, they presented their plans to their peers and we voted on which projects we could accomplish in the spring semester.
The culminating project was to create a book, Saving Earth, to help kids better understand how they could help. The book is completely student created including animations, illustrations, photography, and text. We were able to collaborate with other schools on some of the chapters and share the voices of students from around the world.
