Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Our world is dying and we need to learn how to help it! I am a media specialist at a K-5 elementary school in NC. We serve a high needs, low economic status group of students that need all the available resources they can get.

My students show a lot of interest in our planet but are in need of ideas and resources to teach them about the current state of our planet and how to help it.

I am looking for energy and eco-friendly literature that students of any age or grade can check out of the library and use to learn more about our planet. They will be available to all of my students, all of the time.

With your help my students will gain the knowledge necessary for them to become better citizens. The knowledge they gain from these resources will help empower our future leaders!

Grades 3-5
More than three‑quarters of students from low‑income households
