Ms. d. from Alexandria VA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Teaching Kids to Go Green!

My students need 50 canvas tote bags that they can decorate, 1 for each student, to replace plastic grocery sacks.

We will be teaching a large group of 3-5th grade students in a low income area for a three week summer course.

While we're teaching academic curriculum we are relating everything to "going green" and hoping that we can help children understand their impact on the environment and things that they can do with their families to start making a difference now, and carry on into their own adult lives.

In order to reach these students we need to start them with the basic supplies. We will be providing them with reusable grocery bags, seeds and pots so that we can plant our own plants, and field trips to recycling centers. We need students to not only realize that they can make a difference, but to also see that it can be fun.

Your help will ensure that our students will be able to help the environment by reducing their usage of plastic grocery bags, while also using their own art skills to decorate their bags. You will help make it possible for them to realize how fun and easy it is to help the environment.
