I decided that I really wanted to bring home the idea of how each single person in the world really impacts our Earth. To do this, we decided to draw a picture of our world. I put a large piece of butcher paper on the ground and we all drew what we see in "our world" around us. There was a school, houses, trees, playground, road, flowers, a pond. We looked outside and really focused on remembering details of the world around us. We then placed little people toys all over the "world".
When using this in the classroom, I would have each student put a "person" (some sort of toy or picture) on the map to represent themselves.
Here is all the "real" litter, after we sorted.
