Global warming is a hard sell during a Michigan February!
However, it’s great to read about many schools across the country that are participating in small and large projects to teach children how to protect our planet.
An easy way for a school to start environmental education is to join 700 elementary and secondary schools who are taking part this spring in the first “National Green Week.”
Schools can sign up and select any week until April 13, 2009 for their "Green Week.”
One million children are expected to participate by bringing snacks and drinks in reusable containers. They will weigh their total classroom trash the week prior to and during their Green Week.
