We, Alcuin students in Grades 1- 4 are stewards of the environment. We reflect on our actions and the impacts they have on the community. In our school, we sort our garbage into many bins- garbage, compost, paper, soft plastic, containers, and refundables. For this project we looked at litter and its effects on living organisms locally and globally.  Then we investigated how to make wise choices to reduce waste, culminating in a cleanup in the park playground where we play. Students reflected on the fact that individual actions have widespread consequences.
