Tyler Union Team Celebrates Earth Day with Local Children
April 16, 2014
Tyler Union volunteers always looks forward to Earth Day and celebrate by giving Earth Day presentations to increase environmental awareness which impacts students for a lifetime. Earth Day activities are also a positive reinforcement of classroom science concepts. It’s all about safety, preserving nature, recycling and conservation.
Almost 1,000 Calhoun County fourth graders experienced hands-on science instruction in a natural outdoors setting. Water quality and infrastructure, the recycling of tons of metal to make useful products and nutrition were taught in an outdoor garden. Safety rules and paddle know how for kayaking, rope techniques for rescuing a victim in water rapids and face paintings of super heroes, were all presented at the 2014 Earth Day event.
Thanks to the Tyler Union volunteers for participating in this wonderful event every year!
