Children are the future; therefore it’s important for them to have proper knowledge about our world to make it a better place.
To increase awareness, students launched a 4 week program into Mrs.DeLacruz’s fourth grade classroom, focusing on water conservation, energy, and the environment. This program included fun activities like planting trees, water cycle memory games, and the 4th grade students even raced solar powered toy cars made of recycled materials!
The elementary students are now knowledgeable about ways to help their local watershed by conserving water and energy. By focusing efforts into one classroom, each student now has a good understanding of a watershed. This will hopefully lead to a positive ripple effect, and the students sharing their learnings with their families and friends.
