After learning about litter, the kids will participate in a hands on cleanup activity. You can try it out as a class with a guided litter audit activity, or commit your whole school.
Students learn more detail about the damage caused by litter to our environment & wildlife. Current environmental issues such as plastic pollution, the ocean garbage patches, microplastics, litter related soil or water contamination are discussed more in depth.
After learning about litter, a group cleanup of the school or local park is completed.
Students then continue to brainstorm solutions to reduce litter being found. This program is ideal for leadership students & envrionmental studies. Afterwards, students are invited to to gain volunteer hours and experience in our YES club.
