March 22, 2017 was World Water Day, and Grades of Green Youth Corps 3rd grader Nadia W. celebrated by educating her classmates about the importance of respecting our planet’s oceans. Nadia taught Grades of Green’s Eco-Lesson called Ocean Pollution Solutions to her classmates, and led an engaging discussion about how plastics get into our oceans, and what people can do to prevent this from happening. The lesson included two of Nadia’s favorite youtube videos that explain how plastics affect ocean life, and a poster presentation where Nadia showed examples of plastics that commonly end up in oceans. Nadia inspired her peers to take action to care for our oceans; a perfect way to honor World Water Day! Interested in teaching one of Grades of Green’s Eco-Lessons in your school community?
