Glenbrook School, in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Our school community engages in active learning and what better way to do that then to work with other schools globally to build a Global Monster.
 
Our City Unique Features: 
-Latitude - 51.023569 degrees N and longitude - 114.154953 degrees W

4th grade is excited to participate again! This year we have 44 total 4th grade students. Each homeroom has 22 students. This is another challenging year, but we are working to make it a great one!
This year we would like to focus on the Sustainable Development goal of Good Health and Well Being

                                                                   

I think this is a topic that will hit home with our nation and students as we work hard to stay healthy and make safe choices to keep us healthy during these challenging times. It is also important for us to take care of ourselves (self care) and recognize what we need in order to feel safe and healthy. Also with a focus on keeping our minds safe and healthy too!

New Hampshire

We are Mr. Ferguson's fourth grade students from Lafayette Regional School in Franconia, New Hampshire which is nestled at the foothills of the White Mountains. All 19 of our students love to build, play, share, learn and much more. There are 7 boys and 12 girls with one set of identical twins. This class is a group of fabulous funny fourth graders who love to learn and explore. Outside of school we spend a lot of our time hiking, playing soccer, dirt biking and much more. Above all else, we include each other and express kindness towards all. We would love to reach out and meet other classes. This will be our tenth year building a monster.

New Mexico

Midge Nichelason, Lydia Dallas, Cheryl Babcock, Elena Dolz. Grades 2-5 (Coyote Kids). Carlos Rey Elementary School. Albuquerque, New Mexico

Longitude/Latitude 35.0844 N, 106.6604 W
HIGH/LOW Temperatures 27°F to 93°F
Website / Skype / or Twitter https://carlosrey.aps.edu/ . We also use class DOJO as a form of communication for the school and community. These are just some of the kids participating in the Global Monster project from Carlos Rey Coyotes Kids team!

OUR SCHOOL’S SDG is: HUNGER
                                                        
HOW DOES THIS MONSTER AFFECT HUNGER and COVID? 
Our monster can generate COVID vaccines. It helps eliminate hunger by training dogs to produce healthy food in a farm and factory. This factory does not pollute or affect the earth negatively. After the food is produced it is sent by drone all over the world. The drones drop food by parachute where it is needed most following the map that is on their drone. 

MOVING PARTS: Our moving part are two of our legs. They move up and down with string tied to the back.

Lisa Gervasi - We are a 4th grade class at Main Street School in Irvington, New York, USA Latitude: 41.03908 Longitude: - 73.86638 Altitude: 88 meters. This is the first time being part of the global monster project and we are very excited to join. 

We would like to do the Tea Cup for the monster addressing the SDGs goal #13 Climate Action. We understand the impact that humans are having on the climate causing global warming which is impacting the living creatures in their environments. Urgent action must be taken.

We are 44 fourth grade students strong. We have Panther Pride and we are Respectful, Outstanding, Accepting, and Responsible. We ROAR!!
If our Monster used Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) she would make our world a better place to live by working on SDG #3: Good Health and Well Being. 
                                                             
We would use science and technology to create a vaccine for Malaria. This would greatly help developing countries that still suffer and die from this disease. We would also use science and technology to share information about not only the Covid vaccine, but other vaccines as well in developing countries where information is hard to come by and/or is false and based on fear. This would hopefully encourage more people to become vaccinated.

Massachusetts

David Morrill, Grades K-5, Phoenix School. Salem, MA
Latitude- 42.520900 - Longitude- -70.910240
Temperatures: High- 79.9℉ -- Low- 18.2℉ -- Website: https://phoenixschool.org/ 

Sustainable Development Goals Focus: #13 Climate Action

                                                                                    

My monster can help make my world a better place to live by…
1. Eat trash everywhere and can make reusable water bottles
2. Monster could detect trash in the water from land
3. Monster can breath underwater and help the coral
4. Monster gets its fuel from trash
5. If someone litters the monster will go over and scare the person and tell them to not litter
and would eat the trash
6. The monster is electrically charged, when the cars runs out of battery he charges them
7. Monster will plant fast growing tree seeds to help with deforestation
8. Monster will put out forest fires
9. The monster will stop people from cutting down forests
10. The monster can put fish in the water
11. The monster will inspect fish to make sure that they are the right size to keep for fishers. If the fish are too small, they need to be returned for breeding
12. Helps breed animals on the verge of extinction

My monster can help fight again against the COVID-19 virus by…
1. Use chemicals to kill or get rid of COVID from the planet
2. Sucks the COVID out of people
3. The monster can feel if a person has COVID by touching them
4. Hand sanitizer attached to its hands
5. Monster gives everyone the vaccine
6. The monster can multiply itself to help with COVID patients
7. Monster is loaded with masks and can give mask to people who don’t have one
8. The monster could have bandage dispensers to give to people who got the COVID shot

We are an incredibly unconventional school and independent environment for everyone who learns here. Every week at The Phoenix School, which is located in Salem, Massachusetts, we have different student partnerships of all ages, ranging from TK-8th grade. Partners allow us to simultaneously work together and strengthen our independence and develop our leadership skills. Every year, we try reaching out to as many people as possible around the world. In this way we can collaborate with various students on projects and learn about their culture, while concurrently teaching them about ours. The Early Act Club is a student organization where we get selected into committees and complete meaningful community service for the world, the city, and the school. Hands-on work is a dominant part of our Phoenix curriculum. We always try to branch away from the standard pen and paper, to advance our learning, and to cogitate more. Here at Phoenix, we believe that we are architects of our learning. (Nose and Nose Ring)
