We also talked about our project dealing with water. The gardens need water throughout the summer when we are not here. We put together a rain barrel and will use that to gently water one of the gardens. We also installed a drip hose in the ozone garden. We will measure how the two systems work and which one seems to be better for our gardens.
Finally, we showed Mr. Kennedy the green flag flying on the school flagpole. This in ozone alert flag. Green is good, meaning we have a low predicted level of ozone in the air. But when ozone gets worse, the color alert system goes to yellow, orange, red and purple as the air becomes increasingly unhealthy. At orange, people with lung problems such as asthma should not go outside during the day and exert themselves. The purple flag means the ozone level is so high that it is dangerous to everyone.
Mr. Haag is editing the video. When it is ready, he will post it on Vimeo with a link to our website. You can find it there at http://www.schoolecochallenge.org/Schools/wwmiddle.php
