College Gate Elementary celebrates Earth Day
ANCHORAGE, Ak-- The Lorax says, "unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not." Tuesday students at College Gate elementary are embracing the message of the Lorax and learning to care.
"So for our celebration for earth day, which is to just to call attention to the fact that we're all responsible for making the earth a better place, students in my second grade class were busy writing celebratory statements on little pieces of paper that we put on the lorax tree," Dona Helmer, Librarian, College Gate Elemetnary.
"Anytime we can use a piece of literature and team it with social emotional learning we just make it a better richer part of our curriculum," Helmer.
