Going Green

  1. Create a chart for your child of all the things he or she can do each week to keep the planet green and to conserve resources
  2. Put a green crayon check next to each item if your child does it
  3. At the end of the week, count up how many things your child did to help the environment

  • Putting out lights when not in use
  • Not letting water run when brushing teeth
  • Trying not to waste paper
  • Helping to recycle plastic, glass and newspaper
  • Keeping the neighborhood clean by picking up trash (be sure your child wears gloves to do this and washes hands carefully when finished)
