We decorated 150 bags!

About our project: I worked in conjuction with two of our Grade 6 science teachers, Mrs. Alice Machinist and Mrs. Louise Young. This project served as a wonderful and timely follow-up to the sixth grade unit on ecology. The students worked hard and depicted a wide range of environmental issues. Their bags included pictures, slogans, graphics, facts and suggestions for shoppers on what they could do to participate in Earth Day. We hope to make this activity a yearly tradition!

We decorated 200 bags!

About our project: Knowledge Beginnings is a day care center for infants to kindergarden. It is also a before and a after school program. A place that gives the children the opportunity to learn skills by participating in events such as Earth Day. We made many projects with recyclable materials. The children had the opportunity to use their imagination on these projects. We appreciate the support we receive from the manager of Market Basket supermarket. We also appreciate the efforts of Mark Ahlness Project director.
