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.

Kenneth Gardner Elementary School
We decorated 175 bags!
About our project: This is the third time that I have conducted the Earth Day Project with the Grocery Stores, but I never submitted a report. I also never did the bags with young students before. I am a Middle-Level Science Teacher, and this was the first time trying the bags with the Elementary Students. The students were so excited to make an informative statement within their community about taking simple positive steps to protect our Earth for Earth Day. The Managers at BI-LO were very receptive working with the school students help spread a positive message for Earth Day. Thank you for such a great idea for the community! Tip: Have the student do a blueprint before drawing on the bags.

Lone Oak Elementary
We decorated 238 bags!
About our project: Our school participated in this project for the first time this year. Some teachers helped students work on the bags in class while others sent the bags home. We held a contest and awarded prizes to winners to provide motivation. Students enjoyed designing and decorating the bags. Some even did Earth Day research to provide facts about the holiday on their bag. The project was a success, and we hope to participate again next year!
