This spring 2nd grade creative learners partnered with Restore the Earth Foundation and The Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum to create habitat solutions for endangered animals. Learners worked in teams to research five animals that are threatened by habitat loss specifically in Terrebonne Parish, where Restore the Earth Foundation is working to restore a bald cypress forest at the Pointe-aux-Chenes Wildlife Management Area.
Included in the team's research was a field study adventure to the wetlands at Pointe-aux-Chenes to meet some of the endangered species and see first hand how the animal's habitats are diminishing at an alarming rate.
And that's how these caring 2nd graders are making a difference through their art.
"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better. It's not" -Dr. Seuss
