Third-grade teacher Katherine Heiss, also the school’s Green Team leader and Coordinator of Sustainability, issued a challenge to her students and invited others to participate in a virtual celebration of the 50thanniversary of Earth Day.
Ms. Heiss wrote to the students: “We have spent many years being outside on Earth Day enjoying the world around us. Now we need to be inside taking care of ourselves and families while still appreciating our world.”
Students were asked to take and post photos of a five-step challenge including: Self, Family, Community, Letter or Picture to Someone in Need, Nature. Many embraced this challenge and shared photos on Seesaw.
