Good Stewards of the Earth

April 23, 2013 - Grade 3 & 4 students in teacher Graziella Visentin’s class at St.Francis Catholic Elementary School learned about their carbon footprint as part of their Earth Day activities on April 22, 2013. Understanding the effects of our carbon footprint helped the students deepen their sensitivity and connection to a special virtue celebrated this month-Stewardship. Students read a variety of information books and researched ways to be good stewards of the earth by reducing, reusing and recycling resources. The students designed buttons to wear and promote their friendly Earth Day message to others. The class also created a book with student tips on how to reduce our carbon footprint on the earth. Ideas included walking to a nearby destination, riding their bicycles more often, donating used clothing and composting. Grade 3 & 4 students delivered flower seeds to some of the primary classes to beautify the outdoors at home or their school yard. St.Francis students from kindergarten to grade 6 received red pine seedlings courtesy of Xstrata Nickel and College Boreal to take home and plant outside for Earth Day.
