Youth Leaders Reflect on Leadership Roles During Earth Day Event
Antioch High School Earth Team interns spent some time reflecting on their experience leading the Earth Day event they planned at the Upper Sand Creek Basin.
Below is the script of a skit developed by one team to summarize their experiences in leadership roles during the litter clean up competition they planned.
- Earth Team intern: age 17
- Volunteer #1: age 13, likes unicorns
- Volunteer #2: age 15, spiky green hair
Earth Team intern: “We need to get out there and get our hands dirty to win this litter competition!”
Volunteers #1 and #2: “Yassssssss”
All three team members wander off together in search of treasure, BUT instead of treasure its trash!
Volunteer #1: “I found a plastic bottle!”
Volunteer #2: “I picked up a plastic bag!”
Earth Team intern: “Okay guys I recorded it! Good job!”
Volunteer #1: “Why are we picking up trash anyway?”
Earth Team intern: “We pick up trash because we want a cleaner environment and we don’t want it to end up in our water systems or anywhere else!”
Volunteer #2: “Ahh! There’s a tick on me, get it off!”
Earth Team intern: “Oh no….”
After the tick was removed, the team picked up the rest of the trash in the basin and then headed back to eat food!
Another team wrote haiku poems, following the 5 syllable – 7 syllable – 5 syllable pattern, reflecting on details of the event. Below are some examples
Elderberries were blooming
We were planting native plants
Sun was high above
Kids were everywhere
The sun was shining brightly
Lets plant native plants
Children picked up trash
At Upper Sand Creek Basin
Winner won a prize
