Earth Day

April 25, 2013
Weirton Daily Times
Avella Area Elementary Center fourth-grade pupils celebrated Earth Day by planting seeds in biodegradable, recycled pots, which were taken to the school’s greenhouse. They also participated in an academic hike along the school’s nature trail. Activities centered around academic standards, with hands-on, inquiry-based instruction. Concepts addressed included watersheds, wetlands, renewable and nonrenewable resources, biological diversity, agricultural systems, ecosystems, living and nonliving components, cycles, endangered/extinct species and human impacts on the environment. -- Contributed
