Grandville Central Elementary


Project Description:
My kindergarten students learned about watersheds. We discussed how human activities affect the quality of our water, particularly in the area of Buck Creek Watershed and the importance of native plants in our environment to help with filtration. We took a field trip to Wittenbach-Wege Center to learn about native plants. We also went to the recycling center to learn the importance of recycling. Our culminating activity was a field trip to Saugatuck Sand Dunes to learn more about ecosystems and native plants keeping the dunes intact.

Fostering Lifelong Stewardship:
Students are more aware of how important it is to reduce their waste at our elementary school.
