Kimberly Darling
Knowledge Universe Woodland Primary
Gages Lake, ILUSA

We decorated 225 bags!

About our project: I was taking a technology course through Kendall College and saw the Earth Day Internet Project. I became excited as I knew this would be a way to do something as a class and then I thought even broader, making the project center-wide. The children found this to be exciting and also educational as they learn about caring for our planet. The children learned many things different songs related to this topic, understanding caring for the earth and why we need to protect it. We learned about reducing, re-using and recycling.

Girl Scout Daisy Troop 40138
Lindenhurst, ILUSA

We decorated 50 bags!

About our project: These first grade Girl Scouts had a lot of fun decorating the bags. They did some at a troop meeting and took some home to work on with their families. They were amazed when they learned how many times a paper grocery bag can be reused. We hope to participate again next year!
