Kameron Cary, a fifth-grade student at Charter Day School, shows off a reusable bag she handmade from a t-shirt. The project was part of wider Earth Day celebrations designed to teach students environmental protection and sustainability. Middle School students rotated through a series of stations on coral reefs while kindergarten students met with representatives of the police and fire departments. Students also crafted solar ovens, wrote nature themed poems, and played recycling games.
Laurie Benton, Headmaster of Charter Day School, commented, “Earth Day is a great way to get students interested in our world. From kindergarten to middle school, we pair our proven classical curriculum with exciting lesson plans – inspiring students to protect and preserve their environment.”
