Milk Carton Recycling Project
|Doran Grade 4 scholars have been learning about the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuseand Recycle), Sustainability and the Cause and Effect relationship between human decisions and the environment.
Recently they planned, organized and assisted in a milk carton recycling project with students in Kindergarten to 4th grade. 4th grade students created posters for the cafeteria informing students of 3 types of wastes and ways recycle every day materials, like milk cartons! They recycled over 300 milk cartons in 1 week!
They also reused 100 milk cartons and planted marigolds, green beans and sugar snap peas with 1st grade students in Mrs. Andrade's and Ms. Oliveria's classes. Students in both grades have been studying living organisms.
Professor Rak from Bristol Community College met with grade 4 students and demonstrated alternative energy forms and sustainability.
