Earth Day Groceries Project

The Earth Day Groceries Project is a cost-free environmental awareness project in which students decorate paper grocery bags with environmental messages for Earth Day. One of the oldest and largest educational projects on the Internet, the Earth Day Groceries Project is managed online by Mark Ahlness, a third grade teacher at Arbor Heights Elementary School in Seattle, Washington.

(This activity is also open to organizations other than schools. Cub Scout troops, environmental camps, after school programs, and many others have joined in before.

Develop students’ environmental awareness

This is an excellent compilation of resources for both teachers and students including Earth Day and other environmental lessons, links, and ideas.
