Description:

The Master Pollinator Steward Program is an unbiased, research-based curriculum, which includes hands-on activities and classroom presentations.

They also support healthy ecosystems that clean the air, stabilize soils and support wildlife. Studies show that pollinator populations are in decline because of a loss of feeding and nesting habitats, pollution and the misuse of pesticides.

This is a program in teaching children life lessons by using the activity of chess. The students learn better decision making skills. The activity gives them the chance to become focus and look at options. It enables the students to visualize how everyone around them are important and have a role to play and that even the most significant person can later have a major impact on their lives. Students are shown three phases of life; the beginning where students learn that in the beginning you are learning how the game will begin. Just like in life, school is preparing them for their adult lives. In the middle game, students are putting pieces in place that allow them to succeed in the game as one would do in the work place. Finally the end, as people prepare for retirement, they get an idea of how easy or difficult life can be based on their earlier moves in life. The ultimate goal is for students to realize they are the king in the game and must be protected at all times.

Session topic:

In session 2, the students begin to play the game. They are taught to not just to make a move just to make one. It should have a purpose for their decisions. They are learning to start the strategy part as they learn that daily decisions should not be made halfheartedly. The students are taught conflict resolution. When their king is in jeopardy of being capture, they are taught the acronym CPR. This begins the process of teaching the students to face their issues and not instinctively run from their problems.
