Classroom Challenges

For elementary students, we have developed some fun projects covering issues related to grizzly bears (make a comic strip featuring our own Grizzly 399) and plastic pollution (upcycle plastic from The Belize Trash Monster). Inspired Classroom Challenges are standards-based, and they are FREE to participants, while building skills such as critical and creative thinking, collaboration, and communication.

This month we are celebrating International Tiger Day on July 29th.  Did you know that there are an estimated 3890 tigers left in the wild and between 5000 to 7000 tigers living in captivity in the USA rather than in the wild?  In the USA, there are no federal laws regulating the possession of exotic animals.  They are considered an endangered species.  About 50% of wild tigers live in India and these numbers are quickly receding.  I have been fortunate to see these beautiful animals in the wild and hope that we will be able to save their species from going into extinction. Learn more about Tigers through this video from National Geographic.

Step Up

Challenge Yourself

This month's challenge deals with National Clean Beaches week!  From the vast beaches of the ocean side to the banks of a flowing river, the water and its surrounding environment play an important role as habitat for wildlife and plants. This month, we challenge you to visit and make observations about your closest water ecosystem. What kind of plants, animals, and other aquatic life live in your own community? How could you make changes and clean up your environment to benefit the life within it?

Email a picture of your local water ecosystem (optionally with you in it) to sylviagreenkid@gmail.com with the subject as “July water challenge” to be entered into a giveaway for books and plush!

  • 1st place: a Green Kids Club water book of choice: choose from Coral Reef, The Belize Trash Monster, The Shark and the Volcano, or The Monk Seal and the Magical Mermaid with a plush shark.
  • 2nd & 3rd place: A Green Kids Club water book of choice.
