Donna Brieger
Crestview Elementary
Wolfforth, TXUSA

We decorated 280 bags!

About our project: Second graders at Crestview Elementary enjoyed decorating Earth Day bags for Lowe's Market Place. The students drew pictures and wrote slogans encouraging people in our community to observe Earth Day all year long by conserving, recycling, and reusing the Earth's resources. The project was also a "family affair" with the entire family decorating a bag as well as the ones the students decorated in the classroom. This was the first Earth Day Bag project at our school and we were proud to start a new, worthwhile tradition.

Cindy Singleton
Amarillo Public Schools
Amarillo, TXUSA

We decorated 900 bags!

About our project: Lamar and Landergin Elementary Schools in Amarillo Texas, participated in the Earth Day bags project. United Market Street (a new grocery store) donated about 800 bags for each child to decorate. Several classes discussed environmental issues and did several interactive writing and art projects. Each child was actively involved and learned a lot about our Earth and how kids can work together to make this a safer place to live. We would love to continue this project in years to come and look forward to involving other students in our district. Thank you to the original school who started this project.
