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.

About our project: I am delighted to report that this year, again, my class decorated bags for the local Shop Rite to celebrate Earth Day and send appropriate messages. We actually worked with our buddy class of 5th graders to design some wonderful illustrations we're sure will convince local shoppers to be kind to the Earth.

Point Road School

We decorated 500 bags!
About our project: For the past twelve years we have partnered with Bob Sickles, owner of Sickles Market in Little Silver, NJ. Each year the students put on a play which focuses on the theme of Earth Day and we present our bags back to Mr. Sickles. He then displays the bags in his store and eventually his customers take them home with their groceries. In turn, each student is given a lettuce plant by Mr. Sickles to plant at home and we then plant about 50 in our courtyard garden. In June Mr. Sickles comes back to school for our annual "Green Luncheon" in which our Point Road Warrior Gardeners eat "green things" and use environmentally safe plates, etc.

I collected all of the decorated bags and delivered them to Publix in Fairhope, AL to be distributed this week.

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.

This was a great project that I would like to do from year to year!!
