Earth Day Celebration at Luskin Academy
By: Diana Juarez of Luskin Academy’s Nature’s Own Club
Earth Day is a significant day because it’s one where people bring awareness to the many environmental issues around the world. Nature’s Own Club celebrated this special day because they knew how much it would help Luskin Academy become eco-friendlier.
The Earth Day Celebration at Luskin Academy consisted of many hands-on activities. The members of Nature’s Own were in charge of managing everything – they even created games for the students. Activities included “Trash Dash” and edible terrarium models.
“Trash Dash” is a game where students have a minute to sort as much trash as possible. The contestant with the most trash sorted at the end received a prize. Students learned about the necessity of a clean environment and that they could have fun while doing it.
Another activity was an edible terrarium model which was made out of crushed Oreos, pudding, edible grass and chocolate rocks. Many of the students wanted to make actual terrariums because of how beautiful they looked. Some of the students created art out of trash, such as pigs and dragons. This is another way to recycle – it shows how you can reuse anything or even use it as decorations. At the end of the day, students were given the chance to participate in a raffle for a Venus flytrap.
As people participated at the event they had huge smiles and laughed. It is safe to say that Earth Day at Luskin Academy was a success.
