Channel 20 interviews Mrs. Burke’s 4th Grade on Earth Day Stewardship Field Trip
Earth Stewardship Day 2012
March 2, 2012 was an exciting and fun filled day for the fourth grade students at New Berlin Elementary. Students attended the annual Earth Stewardship Day, a program put on by the EPA at the Illinois State Fairgrounds. Earth Stewardship day gives students the opportunity to celebrate our Earth and learn ways to help protect the environment. Classes rotated through stations which allowed them the opportunity to see several animals during the Birds of Prey exhibit, as well as touch turtles, salamanders, fish, and many others. They also learned about the water cycle and other ways to help reduce, reuse, and recycle. A fun day was had by students, teachers, and parent volunteers!
