Workshops for Students

The Wartville Wizard

Before the storytelling session, the students and I talk about litter – what it is exactly, where it comes from, why it’s bad, and what we should do when we see it.  At the end of the program, students will be given coloring sheets and stickers if they promise to never litter!

I LOVE telling this story about a neat and tidy old man who lives in a town filled with neighbors who litter EVERY DAY.  What’s a tidy guy to do?  How can he convince them to be neater?  It’s a fun story I act out using props that keep even preschoolers mesmerized during the whole program!

Students and Recycling

Surprise!  Students make waste every day, too - just like adults!  But did you know that much of that waste can be recycled?  In this class I will teach students what items can and can’t be recycled, why we should learn the difference, and why recycling is so important.  We’ll play a “Recycling What-If” game with fun prizes!

Freddy The Fish

What kids do with their trash from candy and gum wrappers, fast food containers, soda cans, and plastic bottles can have a terrible effect on animal habitats, especially in waterways.  As “Freddy the Fish” goes on an adventure and travels downstream in the stretch of river he has lived in all his life, he encounters some surprising and even life-threatening obstacles.  I will help students enjoy the interactive part of Freddy’s adventure, observing and identifying the effects of washing cars in driveways, applying fertilizers on lawns, leaving dog poop on lawns, and much more!  Changing these habits can save Freddy’s life, and the lives of his friends!
