The motto “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” was the inspiration behind Earth Day projects at Northeast Elementary School. Students were charged with use old materials to create new products.

Children in pre-K and kindergarten classes expressed their creativity in many different ways, making artwork, games, household items and school supplies. Students made butterflies from use coffee filters and clothes pins, pencil cases from cereal boxes and a birdfeeder from a milk carton. 

A pre-K class created a bowling alley using flattened boxes for the lane, decorated water bottles for the pins and a ball of aluminum foil. Kindergartners made flower pots by cutting water bottles in half and filling them with soil and seeds.
