Mrs. Rutledge said of her plans to use the gift card "Students will use various books during Earth Week to focus on the problems and solutions faced by the characters in the book. The students will compare/contrast their own lives with those in the book(s). Current titles include Just a Dream by Chris Van Allsburg (focus-pollution), If the World Were a Village by David J. Smith (focus- how people around the world use it's resources), The Lorax by Dr. Suess (focus- tree conservation). Students will use technology to create an on-line poster using Edu.glogster.com. Additional books will be purchased so that multiple classrooms in the sixth grade will also participate in this project"
