Pictures from 1999
Mrs. Dalgarn's and Mrs.
Sheridan's first grade classes at Tussing Elementary in Pickerington, Ohio
(a Columbus suburb) got involved in Earth Day 1999 by decorating bags from
a local Kroger store. Part of a week long Earth Day Unit, this awareness
campaign resulted in Trash Sculptures and a room recycling program instituted
by the children. Many extended their school explorations and initiated
recycling regimens at home. Earth Day extended into Arbor Day as one first
grade class planted two trees on school grounds to celebrate and impact
the future. As second graders, the students at Tussing Elementary will
explore an extended Earth Day Unit. Thank you for including these pictures
on your web site and linking the students at Tussing Elementary to global
