Earth Day by Erwin

This past week we did a One School / One Book project using Here Comes the Garbage Barge by Jonah Winter.  It connected to our school-wide recycling service learning project which is on-going.  We chose this week to implement the project because of Earth Day.

Classes talked about how much trash they produce, buried garbage to see what will decompose and how fast, and read the book which is a fictionalized account of the barge of garbage from Islip, Long Island that floated around the Atlantic in 1987 looking for a place to be dumped.

Each class I worked with throughout the week read an Earth Day related book and wrote poems in different formats.

I have put those poems into Glogs for you to enjoy.

Happy Earth Day!
