Hey friends it's Ashley giving a shot out to growing green youth. This summer each group had to teach a weeks worth of lessons on a specific topic and we got the topic of environmental stewardship, sustainability, and the green economy. We are teaching our lessons through a movie ( thestoryofstuff.org ) , games and team based activities. We are having a personal challenge with recycling all the youth are to bring in their recyclable items and they will be weighed, and the person with the most stuff in weight will win a prize. we are also having an recycling egg hunt and even numbers dodge ball. So see you if i survive the week and the dodge ball.
