Greetings from the Worthington Atlantic City Campus–April 29, 2016

Earth Day – Worthington Atlantic City Campus

The Worthington Atlantic City Campus celebrated Earth Day on April 21 with an activity for students to name careers that are “outdoors.” The more careers a student could name, the more appealing the prizes became i.e., 16 GB USB drives or solar scientific calculators, compared to a global stress ball, sunglasses or a globe keychain. The most popular careers chosen were: firemen, landscapers, lifeguards, farmers, garbage collectors and park rangers. Can you think of any others?

In addition, a display of posters depicting the Earth’s diversity were done in Instructor Kelly Herbst ESL classes, “Strategies of the American Classroom.” The vastness of the Earth’s diversity makes it an intimidating topic, but in the end, the students chose to highlight the Earth’s environment with designs of animals, flowers, trees, butterflies, gardens, oceans, windmills and different foods.
