4th Grade Invention Convention

Our terrific 4th graders put on a wonderful "invention convention" recently at Worthwoods where they had to invent a product and show how it worked through their own research, hypotheses, and finally, if their invention was successful by showing what results they were able to get.

Waste-Free Lunch Day

This year for Earth Day the 5th grade students at Worthwoods Elementary School decided to honor Mother Earth by sponsoring a Waste-Free Lunch Day.

Over the course of three normal lunch days students monitored the garbage in the lunchroom to see how much trash was thrown away. It amounted to about 5 bags of trash per day. On April 25th, Waste Free Lunch Day, they set up a can for recycling, a can for compost, and a can for trash. This resulted in trash being reduced to only a single bag, three bags of recycling, and less than a bag of compost.

Students and staff were very proud of the student-initiated project. The students also made a commitment to continue to find ways to help and protect our Earth, starting with the school community.
