The Green Team Composts & Recycles during Lunch

Green Schoolyards America is proud to feature Living Schoolyard Month celebrations that were held in May across the state of California. If you celebrated and would like to be featured here, send photos and a brief description to info (at)  —GSA

Students at Manor Elementary School volunteer to be on The Green Team! They’re in charge of compost, yard waste and recycling at lunch time, supporting their school’s efforts to recycle and reduce waste. 

Students clean up their nature trail, while also playing Trash math. Under the teacher’s supervision math games are incorporated into clean up efforts.

Students learn to use scientific instruments while doing an energy audit of their school.
