Mission:
 You have been placed in charge of making sure the people in Valdosta are doing their best to protect our planet. You will have to find out how to keep the city clean and what you can to make a difference and report it to the rest of the city. You will need to draw at least one thing that will make Valdosta a cleaner or more Earth- friendly place and write an article about it.

Mission Steps:
1. Go to the "Litter on the Loose" web site and listen to the story so that you will know why it is important to take care of litter problems.

2. Now that you understand more about litter, go to Linda's web site and learn some things that kids can do to protect the planet.

3. Now that you know a lot about keeping the planet safe, think of something you would like to report to the city of Valdosta.

4. Draw a picture of something Valdosta can do to make a difference in our world.

5. Write an article about your picture. Tell Miss Williams a fact about the picture and she will write it under your picture.
 
6. Give Miss Williams your picture and article so that your results can be reported to the city.
