Join us in celebrating DPSCD Earth Week 2017!
Day 2 of Earth Week focuses on an incredibly important resource- water! The suggested activities for Tuesday include a Water Filtration Experiment, a whole school Water Audit and an easy water audit your students can do at home! If your school finds any leaks during your Water Audit, be sure to report them to firstname.lastname@example.org!
On day 3 of Earth Week, it’s time to get growing! The suggested activities for Wednesday, Gardening day, include the Detroit School Garden Collaborative Do Now’s, planting in your school garden or starting a classroom garden, and encouraging students to identify a community garden near their home! If your school is a part of the Detroit School Garden Collaborative, be sure to work with your lead teacher to plan and plant your school’s raised bed gardens. Crops will be distributed the evening before Gardening day!
Thursday- Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
Celebrate the 3 R’s on day 4 of Earth Week! The suggested activities for Thursday, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Day, include Bee Green’s Do Now’s from Green Living Science, hosting a school-wide cleanup and helping your students get a recycling bin at home by taking a quick online quiz! If you have any questions about free recycling bins, contact Green Living Science at email@example.com.
Before you head home for the weekend, celebrate the final day of Earth Week by saving some energy! The suggested activities for Friday, Energy Day, include a school energy patrol, a whole school Power Down and a fun Home Energy Audit for your students to share with their families!
