Honoring Earth

Fourth-grade students in Barbara Cataldi’s class at Central Boulevard participated in several explorations to help protect the Earth. As a result of experiments such as testing materials for compostability, they discovered a few simple tips such as making conscientious purchases at the grocery store to eliminate waste and throwing trash in appropriate receptacles. The students also investigated the effects of buried garbage and what it does to our drinking water. In total, the lesson reinforced the importance of keeping our planet clean and making more Earth-friendly choices everyday.
