Cleveland Students Join Worldwide Effort to Clean Up Beaches
photoCleveland Elementary School 5th grade students and their teacher Randy Sohn joined a worldwide effort on September 16 by cleaning up Hika Bay Park in Cleveland. Students picked up, charted, and bagged debris and then graphed the types of debris they found. Cigarettes, plastic items, and bits of paper were the most common. The experience was tied into a science lesson, where students discussed about how this affects the environment for people and animals.

The beach clean-up was in conjunction with the International Coastal Cleanup (ICC), a annual worldwide event coordinated by the Alliance for the Great Lakes. Each year, over 450,000 people worldwide pick-up over 4 million pounds of garbage on beaches and rivers. This was the 7th year that Cleveland students participated in the beach clean-up program.
