Hannah Mossman, St. Mary's County, Maryland, Oakville Elementary School The nursing center in the next town needed help connecting residents to youth in an effort to brighten the resident's days. In response to this need, our 3rd grade team selected our best 30 workers to prepare and present a play at the nursing center.
The play, the "Princess and the Penguin," culminated the students' integrated study of weather and animals. This project also required students to use their writing, researching, and public speaking skills.
Our project was designed to reduce the isolation many senior citizens feel from others, especially young people. Students visited the nursing center on a Thursday morning, set up, performed and socialized with the elderly. Students shared hugs and hand shakes while the elderly commended them on their performances.
The students read for all purposes and used writing to express their thoughts on the project. The students discussed what they thought about the project with each other and shared their thoughts with the residents. The students prompted the senior citizens with statements such as "if this The student developed responsibility through studying and learning their lines and gestures at home. They created and designed their own costumes and props.
We established community partnerships through the parents who volunteered to help with stage set up and transportation of the props. The nursing center activity director assisted with organizing the project and soliciting businesses for props. We also work with Petsmart, Denny Morgan, a retired drama and music teacher, and Crabhrochen.
Plan ahead for service-learning: We contacted the nursing center for suggestions of businesses to solicit for donations. We ordered scripts during the previous summer before school to give the student sufficient time to prepare. To equip the students with the skills and knowledge they needed, we studied techniques for learning lines, and for staging movement and gestures with a theatrical consultant. The students reviewed the steps involved for service-learning, preparation, action and reflection, in teams and read the outcomes we were covering, so that they could see the connection.
Judith Wilson, St. Mary's County performed their last community project of the school year in early June, Through this authentic writing activity, the students received funding to stencil "Don't Dump" on the storm drains in the Southampton neighborhood around their school. Students learned about the importance to "Save the Bay" in this community project. Meet a recognized need in the community: While walking to their small Title I elementary school, many students had noticed trash in the gutters near the storm drains.
It was not until our club's discussion about the environment and ways to save the Bay that the students realized that this debris along their sidewalks would eventually wash into and contaminate the Bay that was less than three miles away.
Achieve curricular objectives through service-learning: The fourth graders through their PACE Maryland Service Club applied the economic concepts they had been studying to a real world situation- an obvious environment problem in their Southampton community. They became the human resources who used capital resources paint and stencils to provide a service stenciling the storm drains for their school's community.
In doing so, they learned the importance of environmental preservation as well. Reflect throughout service-learning experience: The students first had to analyze the potential environment danger in their community.

Through the authentic grant writing process, each student had a part to complete within the grant application.
After providing the service, the students wrote reflections in their learning logs. One student responded, "I learned that stenciling the words "Don't Dump" on the neighborhood's storm drains receives good comments. I hope that other kids are not afraid to help their school or community. The students themselves wrote the grant to receive funding from the Chesapeake Bay Trust.
The club members always run each Maryland Service Club meeting by following scripts which allow them to role play according to parliamentary procedure. The students along with the school's DARE officer went out in the Southampton community to stencil storm drains.
They had asked permission from the Board of Public Works as well as the County Commissioners before embarking on this project. Via this grant, they have established a working relationship with the Chesapeake Bay Trust. Parent's permission was obtained prior to the student service learning project.
Because the club had to apply for a grant, they had to prepare an action plan for the Chesapeake Bay Trust. Students always fill out an action plan for every monthly service project.
The club members learned how the trash is washed into the bay via storm drains and how such contaminants affect the health of the bay and its inhabitants. The students also " live and breathe" such economic concepts as human, natural, and capital resources when providing goods and services as they perform student service-learning projects.

A hydrolate is the condensate water that is left over after extracting essential oils by water or steam distillation. This aromatic water contains the very essence of everything that was in the plant when it was still alive and growing, including some essential oil.
Some of the aromatic and healing parts held within the plant are not captured by the essential oils. This steam condenses back into water, and contains small quantities of essential oil plus many of the water-soluble hydrophilic parts of the plant.

Hydrolate Aromatherapy Class Training. There is simply no substitute for a true hydrolate… Many 'floral waters' available today have been made with synthetic compounds which have no therapeutic or beautifying qualities. Others are produced by adding essential oils or absolutes to water by using alcohol or some other type of dispersant or solvent.
The finished product contains essential oil and may have a pleasant fragrance similar to a natural hydrolate but this type of reconstituted product lacks the wealth of vital healing properties present in a true hydrolate.
Remember that many of the plant constituents were dissolved into the water whilst extracting the oil, so they were never present in the essential oil in the first place! Therefore adding an essential oil to water will never create a product with the same range of healing benefits as a true hydrosol. There is simply no substitute for a true hydrolate… Take care when buying hydrolates produced from Jasmine or from citrus fruits or flowers that are usually extracted by solvents.
