Green Kids Club and Love the Wild are partnering with Inspired Classroom for

Classroom Challenges

Inspired Classroom Challenges are content rich, authentic learning experiences.  All challenges are standards-based and have been built in collaboration between curriculum and content experts. They are FREE to participants.  They use an inquiry-based approach to learning and build skills such as critical and creative thinking, collaboration, and communication. The online resources make them perfect for homeschool, remote learning, or extracurricular projects.

We're helping to bring classroom challenges to children around the world with two of our own, based on Grizzly 399 and The Belize Trash Monster. For more information, see below.

Superhero Bear: Grizzly 399 Challenge

In the Northwestern United States, there is a magnificent species called the grizzly bear. As prime habitat decreases for these animals that have ranges up to 600 square miles, more and more conflicts are affecting their very survival.

Grizzly 399 is a magnificent bear that lives in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. View an amazing video about 399 here! 

Students will learn about the natural history, habitat, and challenges faced by grizzly bears and then use that knowledge to work through the process of creating a comic strip or graphic novel to build awareness about this endangered animal.

This FREE standards-based curriculum is sponsored by Love the Wild Foundation. Teacher and student resources and step-by-step directions make this an ideal project for face-to-face, hybrid, or remote learning

reimagine the world through the

Plastic Upcycling Challenge

This challenge covers issues related to trash and plastic-contaminated waterways, like those addressed in our book, The Belize Trash Monster. After learning about upcycling and plastics, students will create an upcycled product. Be inventive! Be creative! Be useful! Look around the house for items that are no longer needed, especially those made of plastic. Create a new product that can either be used by animals or helps people appreciate animals. Then come up with a clever name for the product. Remember, this is something that people might want to buy or make themselves.

In addition to building something new, write directions on how to make it. The directions and photo of the product might be added to a Green Kids Upcycling Project book so that others can use their old junk to build something useful and make better use of plastics.
