Our class has been talking and writing about ways we can make the world better. One topic that has come up often is that picking up trash would help the world. Children have mentioned that trash can be dangerous for animals and people. They said that plants may not be able to grow if trash is covering the ground. Kindergarten scholars also don't like the way trash looks on the ground. We knew that Earth Day was April 22 and that Green Up Day in Vermont is Saturday, May 2. Today we put on gloves and picked up trash around our school and playground. We were surprised at how much we found. Tomorrow we plan on sorting our trash to see if some of what we collected can be recycled.
