Driving Question: How can we, as CSA first graders, help save endangered animals?
Entry Event: We watched an NBC News story about a scientist who is helping to save animals.
Community Partner: Mrs. Watanabe from the Columbus Animal Council
Plan of Action: We researched endangered animals and each made a google slide presentation about our animals. We presented our research at Town Meeting, and to the whole school. Each class adopted an endangered animal from the World Wildlife Federation and raised money to support our animals.
We invited parents and friends to come and see our presentations. We used our research to write a book about endangered animals.
Driving Question: How can we, as CSA First graders, help children in our community who may not get many toys for Christmas?
Community Partner: Columbus Fire Department
Entry Event: We visited the fire station and the fire fighters asked for our help with the Fireman's Cheer Fund.
Plan of Action: We collected new and gently used toys from our families and classmates at school.
We delivered the toys to the Fireman's cheer fund warehouse. We organized and packed boxes of toys for families in need.
Driving Question: How can we, as CSA First Graders, encourage the students at CSA Lincoln to be Respectful, Responsible, Safe and Peacemakers?

Plan of Action: We will collect and count the Husky Grams each week. We will keep track of the results. We will get prizes to be awarded for the Husky Gram drawing. We will make announcements about the Husky Gram drawings each nine weeks.
Culminating Event: Each 9 weeks, we will have a Husky Gram drawing and award a prize to the winner!
