Environmental Stewardship Project



This project is designed to empower students to make a positive impact on the environment and develop a deep understanding of their role as responsible custodians of our Earth.


Every year students look forward to completing this incredibly rewarding service-learning project on environmental stewardship. They recall seeing their peers complete it in years past and become giddy the moment we introduce it in class. The amount of pride they exude while presenting their completed work to their peers, parents, other teachers, etc. is palpable and makes their hard work and dedication completely worth it.

Their task is simple, “How can YOU positively influence our environment?

There are an endless amount of ideas for this project. I mean it! This project can take place on your school’s campus, in the student’s backyard, on a beach, at the local supermarket, etc.

This project requires students to research, organize, document progress via journaling, summarize the meaning behind the project in the form of an essay and, of course, complete the project itself. You can choose to make this project last one month, one semester, or even the full school year.

A detailed rubric is included, making the expectations clear for students and making the grading process seamless for educators.
