My class of 4th graders in Eugene, OR had a fabulous time participating in the Parachutes for the Planet project. My class consists of 27 students that are 9 and 10 years old. We have spent out year together focusing on sustainability and respecting our planet. We start the year raising salmon, working in our school garden, and actively learning about sustainable practices with a group called Partners for Sustainable Schools. We have learned how each individual can make a difference in protecting our Earth’s precious resources. We chose to be a part of this project because it was another way we could make our voice heard and convey the important message that we want to see a positive change and be a part of that change.
