5th-6th grade students at Inland Lakes Elementary have learned about some native plant species for Michigan.  They then designed a flower garden to plant at a local habitat for humanity home.  They will be involved in the planting of this garden at a home in Northern Michigan.  In addition, 7th graders are learning about energy efficient homes and what it take to be a LEEDS home.  They are modeling their ideal home construction and will hopefully be able to visit the current habitat for humanity home as it is being built.  Eventually,  they volunteer some time at the house as well.
