FCPS Earth Week

April 22-26, 2019

FCPS Get2Green is excited to host Earth Week 2019! Earth Week is a division-wide event to foster conversation and learning about environmental topics that are essential in developing students as ethical and global citizens who are stewards of their environment.

 

This year, FCPS is celebrating with EARTH “Bingo”! Complete one activity for each day with your classroom or green team.  Unlike traditional Bingo, you should have one box checked in each column and they do not need to be in a straight line.  One classroom or team will be randomly selected to win a visit from Ranger Rick plus Get2Green water bottle stickers for every student and the teacher. A select number of additional classrooms will win Get2Green water bottle stickers.

 

To be eligible for prizes, email get2green@fcps.edu the following items by the end of the day Wednesday, May 1:

  • A copy of your completed EARTH board with the boxes checked for the activities you completed with your class/team (this can be a word doc, pdf, or photo of the board – as long as we can tell what activities you did)

  • A picture of your students in action

  • The number of students in your classroom or on your team (if you have multiple classes, tell us the number of students that are participating with you)
