Tap and Stack Initiative "ReThink" Contest School Recycling Plarn Project Reusable Art Share Table
Tap and Stack
Our students did a school wide Tap and Stack Initiative to reduce waste. They also made a commercial that aired on the school's morning news to educate the entire student body. Students also created posters to educate other students about the share table.
Students collected data to determine how many inches of trays they had tapped and stacked. The data was then reported on the school's morning news program.
.One of Mrs. Burton's 6th grade classes recently participated in the RETHINK America contest. They had to study how various bat populations benefited the Midland's, then design a game or art project around it. One of our groups projects was chosen to compete in the Midland's America Recycles Day "RETHINK" Contest. 6th graders Allison Witdockt, Kelsey Pippin, and Julia Webb researched how bats were beneficial to the Midland's. Once finished, they made this bat dart board game from an old wooden pallet and darts made from used wooden skewers with bat wings. A player who pops a balloon receives a bat fact and a small prize. This project will compete in the Midland’s America Recycles Day “RETHINK” Contest on Nov 18. It will be at Edventure Children's museum from 9-11 am.
Students collected paper and cardboard recycling. They used scales to weigh their weekly totals!
Students participated in a school wide Share Table Initiative to reduce waste and reuse items that had not been opened. They also made a commercial to be aired on the school's morning news to educate the entire school.
When the Environmentalist Club members observed that students were not placing the correct items on the Share Table they made a video to educate their schoolmates on the proper way to use the Share Table.
