Grant Category: Literacy
Grade: 8th grade project for elementary student benefit
Funding Goal: $890.25
Team 8C at Edgewood Middle School would like to create a story trail, Deerfield Elementary School. A story trail is a series of structures each containing one page a story book. As hikers walk the trail they read the pages in the book. The goal of this project is to provide an opportunity for our students to work on a project that will directly impact the community they live in. Students at Deerfield will then have the opportunity benefit from something created by members of their communty. Additionally, this project will help Deerfield address the need to engage students in a love of books, and physical activity.
The need we are addressing is building community through a collaborative activity. Additionally this project supports a love of books. The goal is to create the trail by the Spring of 2018, which will allow for an opening celebration, and data collection on trail use.
