Located in the bustling suburbs of Lawrenceville, Ga, EcoReach volunteers took a trip to Lovin Elementary on January 25th.
They taught third graders about pollution, covering important issues like acid rain, run off, and plastic waste. Learn more about plastic waste here: pollution article.
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch and the role fungi and bacteria play in helping us recycle waste were also mentioned: video about the patch.
The students participated in a question-answer activity and then worked with a partner to discuss pollution and draw pictures of ways to reduce it. They made sure to leave the students with a feeling of hope but also that there’s a lot of work left to be done.
