Clinton Elementary School
Clinton, TN USA

We decorated 450 bags!

About our project: Our Earth Day grocery bags decorated the hallways throughout the two-story school building for a week before we took them to the Local Ingles store to be used for packing groceries. We designed and had Earth Day T-shirts made for staff members including cafeteria workers, and we asked all students to wear shirts representing Earth's habitat and Earth Day messages. One class prepared a flannelboard story and presented it to several other classes.

Hal Henard Elementary School
Greeneville, TN USA

We decorated 360 bags!

About our project: I did this project with Kindergartners thru 5th Grade. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. We used construction paper crayons which show up much more brightly on the brown paper. Before beginning, we talked about Earth Day and what the children already knew about it. Third, fourth, and fifth graders added an environment message to their bags. The younger children just drew pictures and wrote Earth Day 2003 on their bags.
