Pandas, Rainforests and Palm Oil – This presentation and a movie about Palm Oil (see below). was a collaboration of several students who learned how so many issues are interconnected.

Grade 7 students created a game board and challenged the elementary students to cover the board with medallion representing a certain amount of ring tabs.. For example collecting 300 ring tabs would result in a free basketball for students at a school in the Philippines with Purple Community Fund. Students worked together to collect over 33,000 ring pull tabs. These are upscaled into products that are sold internationally.
