Johanna Broyles
PW Moore Elementary
Elizabeth City, NC USA

We decorated 120 bags!

About our project: We decorated 120 bags. This is the second year my students participated in this AWESOME project. I teach Spanish to 3-5 graders. My students had a great time writing messages on the bags using both languages, Spanish and English, along with their neat pictures to make our community aware of ways to take care of our planet. Also, they LOVE seeing their pics on the web. Thanks for this great idea!

Look at our pictures!

We decorated 20 bags!

About our project: Hi! Our class was walking around the school and filled 20 Harris Teeter bags with trash for earth day. We found beer cans, cigarette boxes, candy wrappers and some every-day trash. This took about 30 min. and we finished it with a clean school! We hope to encourage every one else in the world to do the same!
