Beckie Morrell and Rita Gallant go on a Scavenger Hunt at a local Elementary School
May 5, 2014
On April 22, Clow Canada team members Beckie Morrell and Rita Gallant volunteered at a local elementary school to help with their Earth Day celebration. Beckie spoke to the children about Earth Day, recycling and even a little bit about safety to ensure they were not picking up garbage that could harm them.
Garbage around the school and surrounding neighborhood was collected and a garbage scavenger hunt was a big hit with the children again this year. The teacher asked Rita and Beckie to keep track of each type of garbage collected on the scavenger hunt and the totals will be used later to teach the students about graphing. Six bags of garbage were collected!
After a hard day of garbage collecting, the children celebrated with Timbits! Now, for those of you who are not from Canada, Timbits are small round donuts, better known in the States as donut holes. You can get them at Tim Hortons in Canada or Dunkin Donuts in the States. They are delicious!
