chemical equation
Chemical Equation
  • CO2 + H2O = C6H12O6 + O2
  • The sun provides the energy needed to change carbon dioxide and water into glucose (sugar)
steps to plant a tree
Steps to Plant a Tree
  • Get an empty 2 liter bottle and fill it with dirt.
  • Then put the acorn into the ground on its side 1.5 inches.
  • Water the acorn with 100 mL of water.
  • Water the acorn every week keeping the soil moist, but not too wet.
Keep the bottle and acorn in the sun.
  • After 3 months you will get a baby oak tree that is about 8 inches tall.
  • The small green seedling will naturally make glucose by photosynthesis.
  • Draw a thermometer poster (3’by 2’)and put it on the board for the classes to see progress.
  • Each class competes to get the most money raised.
  • The class at the end of the semester with the most points gets a prize.
  • For example the class could have free time or a potluck.
To raise money have the students bring in 5 cents, a can, or a bottle.
  • These items can be recycled for money.
  • Each nickel or can earns the class a point.
  • After only 1.5 years of fundraising the 8th grade Science students have raised $1400.

Big Fundraising
  • To get large donations like $75 it is a good idea to send out letters to banks and businesses.
  • Find the addresses by looking in the online yellow pages and copy them.
  • Print the PDF of the Plant a Billion Trees and the Word Document Fundraiser letter from the Fesler website.
Address the envelope, stuff both documents inside, and mail it.
  • Call the bank in one week to ensure that the letter arrived and ask the manager if he or she will be able to make a donation to the Plant a Billion Trees Organization.

Hi this is Mike from Fesler Junior High.

I wanted to make sure you received our fundraising letter and brochure.

I was wondering if you will be able to make a donation for our Plant a Billion Trees Fundraiser.

You can make a check out to Fesler Junior High for the Nature Conservancy.

That’s ok. Will you be able to make a donation personally
  • Ok thank you for your time.
  • When they say yes.
  • Please use the address on the brochure
  • That is 1100 Fesler street, Santa Maria CA 93454
When students learn to repeat these steps over and over again they will plant hundreds of trees and raise hundreds of dollars for reforestation.
  • For motivation watch Fable of the Himalayas on YouTube.
  • Now the seed has been planted in you.
