They planned and lead the celebration for Earth Day all around the school. They met with all the principals and they approved the lesson plan made by the team. This team planned activities for all the houses with essential questions, videos, appreciations and final reflections.   

Also, they did research and they realized paper towel is more environmental friendly than hand dryers.
