About our project: This was a fabulous project that I will be sure to repeat next year. The children felt that they were doing a great service to the community by raising their awareness on Earth Day. Slogans as well as illusrations covered each bag that was delivered. Various mediums, such as pastels, paints, crayons and markers were used.The children took pride in their creations and felt like they were being heard.

Look at our pictures!
