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 126 bags!

About our project: This is Oak Grove's second year participating in the Earth Day Goceries Project. We kicked off the event with a school-wide viewing of "The Lorax" (based on Dr. Suess' book about perserving the planet) complete with popcorn that was distributed in reusable bowls that the students brought in for the event.

Shelburne Community School
Shelburne, VTUSA

We decorated 75 bags!

About our project: After a 2 week unit of reduce, reuse, recycle we tied up it up with a celebration of Earth Day! 4 Kindergarten classes wore all green and worked hard to put their earth day messages onto grocery bags. Today, 2 of the classes walked all the way to Shelburne Supermarket to deliver the bags!!!! It was exciting for the children and an adventure they will never forget.
