2nd graders learned about how artists will take “garbage” from our oceans, lakes, and rivers and create sculptures to bring awareness to pollution. Students then were given the opportunity to create their own sculptures out of unwanted items from home. Our “garbage pile” was gathered from the homes of teachers and students. In another classroom, students learned about the health benefits of dirt and made "edible dirt". The History of Earth Day was discussed in another classroom while one of the classrooms took the fun outside to enjoy Recycling Relay Races.
