Fifth Grade Pollinator Plot

posted Jun 5, 2019, 10:14 AM by Jill Brunkan   [ updated Jun 5, 2019, 10:18 AM ]

Fifth grade is growing a pollinator plot for pollinators because they are endangered.  Pollinators are bees, butterflies, bats and other animals that help plants reproduce and they are losing their habitat due to farming, chemicals, and diseases.  We are planting native plants to provide a place for them to stop and “refuel” in order to take a break before they continue migrating or before they continue with their work of pollinating. In order to do this, we are planting a pollinator mix we received from Scott County Pheasants Forever.  


In this final trimester our class has been learning about pollinators, and how they are very important to our world.  According to the Iowa DNR website, around 70-87% of flowering plants rely on these important animals and insects! All-in-all it’s important for the pollinators to have somewhere to take a break and help with pollination! So come on by and see the Ed White Feed-A-Bee Plot this summer!

Biztown

Fifth grade classes had the opportunity to go to JA BizTown this week.  Junior Achievement empowers young people to own their own economic success.  Prior to our trip students assessed their own personal skills, interests and values; understand the economic benefits of education; explore career options; learn job hunting skills; and practice personal and business financial management.  Students learn about the economy and the roles that consumers and producers play in the free enterprise system.


JA BizTown is a hands-on experience to help young people understand the economics of life.  Businesses take out a business loan to start up their business. They need to attract consumers to purchase their goods or services, so they can pay back their loan and make a profit.  


Students have to get a job and work to earn a paycheck.  Then they decide what goods or services they want to purchase.  They need to keep their personal checkbook register accurate.


JA brings the real world to students, opening their minds to their potential.


Thank you to all of the parent volunteers that helped.  This experience would not have been possible without you.
