Mrs. Sanchez 4th grade class

Hi, I Victoria Zazueta am interviewing Hannah Smallhouse and Mia Dale. Mia Dale is in second grade and Hannah Smallhouse is in third grade. I asked them a few questions about compost. They said, “It is important to motivate others so that they will join us to help the environment.” Isn’t that very thoughtful of them to share their ideas? They said they wanted to write in the newspapers to get people’s attention on important science ideas and to interact with our community. Now, we have a school newspaper section in the San Manuel Miner.

They started putting posters up all over our school to get students excited about composting so they would bring organic materials from home for our compost bins. It is important to compost because it is a cycle of life that goes on and on and helps save our environment by recycling, reusing, and reducing waste.

They love Mrs. Formo because she helped them do all the things they came up with and so did I. They also love me because I am their friend and I helped them with the compost. They love compost because it is good for the children to get outside and start making compost. So tell your kids to get off their backsides and make compost!
