Earth Day...the Blanchard Elementary Way!

In celebration of Earth Day, we dusted off our Traveling Trainer shoes (Chacos in our case) and headed to Blanchard Elementary School in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Borrowing the school’s playground, we met with the entire second grade to talk about LITTER! Using one of our favorite activities from the PEAK Pack, we were able to learn a little about Leave No Trace and have fun at the same time.

We were very impressed with the ideas that the students shared on ways that we could Reduce, Reuse and Recycle our trash.

After our presentation, Ms. Harper invited us to her classroom where her students showed us some ways to be great citizens of our planet! They had such great ideas, that we wanted to share a few of them with everyone!

We wanted to give a BIG THANKS to all the second grade students and their teachers for spending Earth Day with us! We really appreciated your interest in Leave No Trace and your excitement for protecting our environment!
