Hampton Street School students commemorated Earth Day with a variety of activities on May 10. To promote reusing and recycling, the school set up outdoor stations for students to decorate grocery bags and reusable water bottles, create their own sandwich/snack bags, and make recycled t-shirt bags. Students went on a nature scavenger hunt, looking for leaves, birds, flowers and insects in the school yard. They also dug their own dirt to plant seeds of their choice. Inside the school, students had the chance to see wildlife up close. Jungle Bob was one of the presenters, introducing a tarantula. Volunteers for Wildlife brought an opossum and owl for the students to see, as well.
