Description of Activity: CTE_swap_shopPlace all items on a table and allow children to view what has been brought in. Emphasize to the students that the activity is about giving something to someone who would use it when you no longer do. It is NOT about getting something. This helps students understand that there might not be something they want and that is ok. Draw names out of a hat to see who gets to go first. Take all leftover items to Goodwill or an equivalent agency. Encourage students to do a reuse it swap with friends–they can exchange books, puzzles, games, etc.

Green Clubs

Getting students engaged in green practices is the key to a healthy future for our community. Green Clubs in our schools are a terrific forum for students to learn how to care for the earth and to put that knowledge into practice. See below for what student green clubs in our district are doing so far this school year!
