What is your wish for this project?
Students in my class became concerned about the effect of plastic pollution on oceans. Since Houston's many waterways and storm drains run straight into Galveston Bay, my students realized they could make an impact right here within their school community.
How did it go?
I was so proud of my third graders. These kids built invaluable research skills learning about plastic pollution, worked together as a team to come up with a plan, organized a school event, reschedule the event twice due to weather, and then executed a cleanup while educating the first and second graders about plastic pollution in our oceans.
