Presentation by Greenhills High School Students

On Friday a group of Greenhills High school students used their day off from school to spend the morning teaching  the 1st and 2nd graders about how marine animals are impacted by pollution in the oceans.  

The five students, 8th graders, put together an amazing collection of activities for the children.  They started with a power point presentation that gave the children information about the types of pollution that are endangering ocean wildlife.

 Next the children got coloring sheets with cartoon sea creatures and also made fish from construction paper;  to be used in a game later.

 There were 3 stations with games for the children to play.  If they were successful they received a gummy fish for their accomplishment.

At the end of the morning, the children got in teams to work on a marine animal word search.  As we moved to snack many children were professing, "this was the best morning ever!"

An added pleasure for me and Susan, was to see a former SK student.  One of the presenters was SK alum, Rachel Murry. 

Thank you to these amazing young women for working with us.
