Helping the Earth
In the 7th grade, in Rye Jr High we are now learning about helping the earth. We learned a lot about compost, recycling, waste, and many more. The first activity was trash sorting. What we did was we weighed the trash from two day of lunches. There was about 85 pounds of landfill trash. Then we dumped the trash out onto some mats. After we did that, we sorted the trash into three bins, one bin was compost, other bin was recycle and the last bin was landfill. After we sorted the trash we had about 25 pounds of landfill trash left.
The second thing we did was watch some movies on a lot of different things about the earth.One movie was on the story of stuff which was about buying stuff and then once it breaks to get another. Another was about tv ads and want kids to get their parents to buy things for them and the last one was landfill. These were all based on opinion which isn't always right.Then last we did a webcast for earth day, which i was not here for. Now i will end my story. Thank you for reading.
