Broadmeadow second graders have been hard at work collecting over-used and dried out Crayola markers from classrooms around the school. As part of the Crayola ColorCycle program, students learned about how recycling Crayola markers, instead of tossing them in the trash, protects their environment. Groups of second graders visited classrooms during Morning Meetings and shared their important message. Energy can be made from markers ready to be discarded! Classrooms watched a video that showed how the markers
wouldbe sent to a facility where they
wouldbe converted into clean fuel.
Students learned that this fuel can
then be used to power vehicles, heat homes, cook meals and more!
