South View Middle School
Hope Mills, NCUSA

We decorated 600 bags!

About our project: The students were taught a lesson on the importance of conservation. The students learned that it is important to protect the environment and view areas that were polluted due to litter and contamination. The students were given the bags and told that we were going to celebrate Earth Day and what it stands for. The students were excited about decorating the bags. I sent in the press release to two newspapers but so far it was not mentioned.

Ligon GT Magnet Middle School
Raleigh, NCUSA

We decorated 125 bags!

About our project: This was a wonderful project!! My ecology class joined with an art class to create the bags. Students painted the bags, then added environmental quotes and finally attached a list of ways to celebrate Earth Day. We took 9 of the students to Harris Teeter to deliver the bags and tell customers a little about what they did and why. They highlighted the suggestions which were stapled to the bags. Customers were excited and surprised and often asked more questions. We truly enjoyed the project and hope to do it again next year with even more students. Thank you for this wonderful opportunity. Our students had a chance to learn, create and share with the community -- this is learning in action!! Thank you!
