How Can We Take Care of Our Commons?

Grades K - 5

In this lesson, students learn what a Commons is, how to take care of a Commons, and the importance of everyone doing their part to keep their Commons healthy and beautiful. They apply this learning to identify goals and rules for keeping the classroom Commons healthy and commit to individual actions they can take to care for the classroom Commons.
