Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Kids for a Clean Community
Our community is in need of clean-up and education on the benefits of recycling. Students will conduct research and brainstorm different ways that they can make our community a cleaner, healthier place to live. This will lead to the students creating a presentation on one specific method of conservation/recycling.
How can we make the city of Roanoke a cleaner, healthier place to live?
Read What If Everybody Did That? This book contains a series of scenarios where a young boy does something thoughtless which kids are apt to do. While doing one small bad thing, like shooting straw wrappers or throwing soda cans out a car window, does not seem like a big deal, if everyone did it, the world wouldn't be a very clean, healthy place to live in. His curiosity gets the best of him but he is forced to consider the consequences of his actions on the world around him. This book will be a good conversation starter about the consequences our actions have on our environment.
