Describe (in detail) what you presented on EARTH Day. Be sure to describe your "hook," your activity, and your "wrap up" in enough detail that next year's groups will be able to use it and improve upon it.
When the kids arrived at the table we caught their attention by explaining how landfills and the lack of recycling effect the environment. We then proceeded by asking the kids if their families recycled and if they could think of ways to reuse water bottles. For our activity we had the kids paired up into groups and were given a water bottle with the tops cut off. From there the kids filled up the water bottle half way with soil and added in seeds for there desired plant or vegetable. This activity allowed the kids to learn a new way to recycle and how to plant there own food.
Please describe in detail suggestions you have for improving your presentation if it were to be done in the future.
To improve this presentation more infomation could be given on the topic of home grown food and produce. Ad well ad this a larger variety of plants for the kids to choose from would have been ideal.
