We decorated 20 bags!

About our project: I am delighted to report that this year, again, my class decorated bags for the local Shop Rite to celebrate Earth Day and send appropriate messages. We actually worked with our buddy class of 5th graders to design some wonderful illustrations we're sure will convince local shoppers to be kind to the Earth.

We decorated 500 bags!

About our project: For the past twelve years we have partnered with Bob Sickles, owner of Sickles Market in Little Silver, NJ. Each year the students put on a play which focuses on the theme of Earth Day and we present our bags back to Mr. Sickles. He then displays the bags in his store and eventually his customers take them home with their groceries. In turn, each student is given a lettuce plant by Mr. Sickles to plant at home and we then plant about 50 in our courtyard garden. In June Mr. Sickles comes back to school for our annual "Green Luncheon" in which our Point Road Warrior Gardeners eat "green things" and use environmentally safe plates, etc.

Freehold, NJUSA

We decorated 500 bags!

About our project: Our school has been participating in this project for a few years now. This project is a great way to introduce a short unit about how to make the world a better place by recycling, reducing waste and using reusable products. Student then put the knowledge they learn into decorating the paper bags. It gives student s a feeling of accomplishment and a chance to give back in a creative way. The staff and students find it to be a fun, easy project for any grade level. Many of our classes chose to work together with other grade levels to promote teamwork and collaboration.
