START PLANNING NOW FOR  THE LAKE FORES EARTH DAY PROJECTS!

Each year students in 3rd through 5th grade are challenged to build/create/ or re-purpose something out of recycled materials in celebration of Earth Day on April 22. Students can work individually, with a partner or small group (no more than three is recommended) or with a sibling in grades 3-5. Students are encouraged to be creative and original. They may “borrow” an idea but are asked to make it their own by changing it in some way from the original. Pinterest is a great place to look for inspiration for children's recycling projects.

All submissions must be:

The Earth being engulfed by green recycle symbols

* Your own-Only have a parent help when you need to use materials, sharp tools or power tools, that are not appropriate for your age. 

*School Appropriate

                                      *Clean (food containers must be washed with soap and water)

                                      *Portable (you must be able to carry it by yourself and fit through the library door)

The winners of the Earth Day Awards will be chosen by student vote on April 22nd by Lake Forest students. Students MUST WAIT until Monday, April 18th to start bringing in their projects. Projects brought in earlier will be sent home.
