Robyn Yorker’s Blue Team classroom students from the Stepping Stones Day Program at the Fourth Street School recently welcomed anti-litter enthusiast Robert Green, who discussed the importance of keeping the Earth clean.
Green, committee chairman for the Oswego County Green Team Anti-Litter Campaign, visited the Center for Instruction, Technology and Innovation classroom for the culmination of the students’ project-based learning unit on the three “Rs:” reduce, reuse and recycle. Students learned the importance of reducing litter throughout Oswego County and were encouraged to care for the environment.
The students’ recently collected milk cartons to create an indoor garden, and created recycled vertical soda bottle gardens along with miniature milk carton landfills.
For their efforts, Green gifted students with recycling bags for their family cars.
Yorker said her students were so inspired by Green’s presentation that they will plan their own fundraising campaign to help support the Green Team Anti-Litter Campaign.
