Advocates for a Better Earth

After reading Michael Recycle and the Tree Top Cops students in Allison Hernandez’s fourth-grade class at Landing Elementary School created Earth Day mascots and wrote brief statements about how they feel they can make the Earth a better place. Mikael Barajas wrote, "I can make the Earth a better place by cleaning beaches and picking up trash in the street. Cleaning the beaches is a good thing because if you clean the beaches, where will you play and who will protect the wildlife that lives there? I can form a club to protect wildlife. I can also recycle plastic bottles because you can reuse them and make them into something else."
