Fourth grade students at Palmer Lake Elementary spent the last four weeks of the school year on an interdisciplinary learning project about plastic. They then presented their findings to family and other students on May 30 and 31. 

The unit combined math, science, art and music to help students find the answers to three questions:

  • What impact does plastic have on our lives?
  • How does one person affect the environment?
  • How can one person make a difference in the community?
