Cultivating the next generation of ocean advocates!
This is an opportunity for your class or family to take care of the planet.
One of the things I’ve been working on this winter is a follow up project for children after seeing the whale. I know they love being inside Nile, but I want to empower them to make a difference. Introducing Playground Protectors. Each school, grade, classroom or family can commit to cleaning up their playground once a week for the rest of the school year or the summer. The key here is to keep track of the types of trash and amounts you pick up. That way, at the end of the summer, we will have an total number of items that you picked up.
Participate in 3 easy steps:
1. Print out the data card below. (One is for families and one is for schools!)
2. Pick up trash and every time you throw it in the trash bag, write down what it is on the data card. Make sure you grab gloves when you are picking up trash and if something seems dangerous, always ask your adult to pick it up!
3. Send in the information. Take a picture of it, and text it or email it to the info on the card!
It's that easy. Let's see how much trash we can collect this summer.
