San Bernardino, CAUSA

We decorated 25 bags!

About our project: Instead of the grocery bags, my class created bookmarks. With a delay in motor skills it was simpler for my kids to color in all the white in a smaller space of a bookmark. I find some free templates online I simply print out on cardstock then cut the bookmarks out. After the coloring was completed I laminated them and we passed them out at our school library.

We decorated 60 bags!

About our project: My students loved this project even as freshmen in high school! I printed off earth day conservation tips and they had to include at least one on every bag. They also decorated the bags. We used one class period and some wanted to do more! We had fun! The employees at Paul's Fruit Market LOVED them!

We decorated 50 bags!

About our project: Our daisy project for the year was about recycling and we decide to decorate grocery bags about recycling. The Ft. Knox commissary donated the bags but were unable to accept them back due to regulations for health and safety. The Ft. Knox thrift store is all about reusing things that you no longer want. You can donate things there for other families to buy and the money goes to help soldiers families who are less fortunate. This all ties in with recycling. We worked on the project at every meeting and also took some bags home to decorate. We learned a lot about recycling this year.

About our project: This was our schools first year to participate in the Earth Day Bags Project. We loved it! All our intermediate students participated. Students watched the PowerPoint show to gather ideas and had lessons in the classroom about why we celebrate Earth Day. The bags turned out great!
