Preparation Instruction:
Science- Research various invasive species for Guam and select 3-5 items.
English- Essay or report on why this project is important, talk briefly about the items you selected and why you chose them, How did completing the project make you feel? Set up a presentation board to show each of the invasive species and how the area looked after the items were cleared.
Math- Math formulas can be used to section off and measure the area for clearing the invasive species. For High School Senior’s projects can be more elaborate by calculating how many of each invasive species was found in the 20x40 area and record a time lapse video or instructional video to help others.

Learning Standards/Objectives:
  • To empower students to learn about the invasive species on Guam and how we can assist in eradicating or controlling them.
  • Offer a service learning project that can be done in their back yard with little to no expense, but seeks to address an island wide issue.
