Reducing 4 More!
Just a little change can make a world of difference

TAKING ACTION! – Denton Avenue Elementary School

On January 23 and 24, our group visited a local elementary school to discuss the importance of recycling. During our visit, we taught students the benefits of recycling and what would happen if they didn’t (global warming). We did crafts and games with each class and had a great time. At the end of each class visit, each student signed a poster that pledged that they would recycle. Also, each student got a copy of our handout, which shares more information about recycling. The poster the students signed is now hanging in their schools cafeteria. Below are some class pictures we took with the students:

Degliomini’s 2nd grade class

The picture above is Mrs. Degliomini’s 2nd Grade Class with their paper chain and our poster. After presenting our project to their class, each student drew what they could do to help the environment on a strip of paper. When they all finished, we created a chain that is now hanging in their classroom.

Above is a picture of Mrs. Donell’s 3rd grade class with their paper chain and our poster. Unlike the 2nd graders, the 3rd graders drew what happened if we recycled on one strip of paper and what would happen if we didn’t on the other strip of paper.
