About our project: Students at Pauline South Intermediate School, Wakarusa, Kansas (located just outside the capital city, Topeka) are participating for their fourth year in the Earth Day Grocery Bag Project. Pauline South students decorated 219 bags with environmental messages this year. This is such a worthwhile project in that it helps the students become more aware of the environment as well as the community. The students would like to thank Pauline Grocery Center for donating the grocery bags and helping with this project. We look forward to Earth Day 2002.

Look at our pictures!

About our project: Science Outcomes for 2nd grade say to 'practice ways to conserve resources'. I have a recycle center in my classroom and the students have brought in aluminum, tin, paper, and plastic all year. As they bring in these items it makes their families aware of what recycling is all about and possibly recycling will become a family routine after the students leave my classroom. For this year, I am willing to take the items to recycle bins in Topeka. We sold the aluminum and were able to buy theater tickets at half price. In addition to bringing items from home the students are very aware of their environment because they are always picking up litter from the playground. Also, they are very concerned on a larger level about the endangered animals and the reasons they are endangered. We also study habitats (biomes) and incorporate discussion about why some habitats are being destroyed. So your project fit right in and it was another way for students to be personally involved. When they can spread the message to our community it is another way that they can make a difference. Thank you for letting us participate.
