This project will be completed by reusing and recycling materials to hand-make the cards. I will also hold card-making parties at my house to involve more peers on this important issue and take a break from school to utilize their creative side.

To start we assessed our school to where or what needed the most help. We educated ourselves about the proper ways to recycle and what can be recycled. We looked to see where garbage was collecting and if there were garbage and recycling bins around. We also put up recycling signs that let people know what they could or could not recycle. We put signs around the school that invited people to our All School Clean Up. After school we walked around the playground and cleaned the garbage and sorted them into the correct recyclable categories. We had garbage bags, recycling bin, plastic gloves to help us pick up garbage. We also wrote a grant to try to get a recycling bin on the playground. And eventually we would like to plant a tree on our freshly cleaned playground.

This year, we would like to focus on starting and maintaining an effective recycling program in our school community. We have learned about the importance of conserving our natural resources.

The first grade theme in social studies class this year is “community”. In the beginning of the year, we studied the Agnes Irwin community by taking a walking tour of the campus. We visited the Upper School and the areas where students study, hang out and eat. The first grade students were appalled by the trash and the various possessions the older students left behind. There were pens, hair ties, plastic wrappers, soda cans, and much more. Every first grader picked up at least two items of trash. When we went looking for a trashcan or recycling bins, we were surprised we could not find any. The students were eager to think of solutions to reduce trash at our school. We read The Earth Book, by Todd Parr, to help us understand what we could do to improve our school and preserve the planet for everyone. We also watch videos on the importance of recycling and caring for the environment.

Our project was to pick up litter in our Northeast Minneapolis neighborhood. Our students were given an area to be cleaned up from litter, each student received a paper bag and a pair of gloves. Before we went out to clean up we discussed what is litter and how we safely pick it up and dispose of it.

My project will stop people from littering. We will do this by, picking up litter WHEREVER we see it, meeting weekly to clean up litter in neighborhoods, and reusing any materials we can.

We will print a list of acceptable items for recycling in our city. We will apply for a grant to purchase recycling bins for our school to use. We will create a shared space to store paper tube rolls, bottles, caps, cardboard and other materials to turn into upcycled art projects in our Early Childhood Education classrooms.

After several discussions within the group, we decided to host a fashion show. We would only use recyclable materials in the fashion show so that not only could we promote a message that these materials are more useful than most of us think, but also we would not generate more waste. We would also put a theme of Leukemia for the fashion show.
