We decorated 32 bags!
About our project: My students were very excited about the project, which went along with the Energy and Conservation unit that we were studying at the time. We visited many websites about Earth Day and discussed how easily can the 4 R's (Rethink, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) can be implemented in our school, home and the community. This was a great project.

Justice Street Elementary School
West Hills, CAUSA
We decorated 37 bags!
About our project: I didn't find out about this project until it was almost over. I told all 26 teachers at the school aboout it. Unfortunately, most did not have time to do it. Next year, I will be sure to get started earlier! The two teachers that did participate, were very enthusiastic about it.I did not take part in the decorating. I obtained the bags and returned them to the store for the teachers.

About our project: We decorated the bags as part of our science unit on the rainforest. The students definitely made the connection between recycling the grocery bags and saving a tree.
