Green Team Litter Grabbers

Help me give my students tools to make cleaning our campus fun. We keep the litter out of our stream and therefore the Chesapeake Bay and Atlantic Ocean, AND we get to take the whole class outside!

My Students

Students at our middle school come to us from diverse backgrounds with a kaleidoscope of talents and interests. As the Special Education Resource teacher in the 8th grade science classes, my co-teacher and I encourage curiosity and investigation. I also sponsor the Green Team, putting their concerns about the environment into action.

Our students have very real concerns about our environment and want to do something to help.

They have helped establish a meadow, planted trees, and we had a big turnout for our annual stream clean-up.

So much of the news about the environment is alarming. It is easy to feel hopeless - what can one person do? Giving them opportunities to see the difference they can make is vital to their spirit of volunteerism.

My Project

In 8th grade science, we take a look at our local environment, the Chesapeake Bay watershed. With a class set of trash grabbers, each student will be able to pitch in without risk of actual contact with the litter.

We have a beautiful campus bordered by a forested park and stream.

Most students don't even realize the stream is there. The trash grabbers give these children a closer than usual encounter with the beauty of nature all around them.

With the storage bin, we can roll out the set at the end of field events. The grabbers make the job fun - like Tom Sawyer painting the fence!
