Some very happy kids

Grade 6 students from TM Roberts came to work on an pottery project with Karen at Parkland Middle School. The students made bowls which connected back to a study on the environment. While the students were in their regular classroom they researched the impact of disposable-ware, particularly plastic and styrofoam, on the environment. Then, once the bowls were finished being fired and glazed the students took their prize pottery projects back to their school and used them for a celebratory lunch. The students awareness on the impact of disposable ware was heightened and as a class they discussed more ways they could help reduce the amount of garbage going into the landfill.
