MES third-graders explore pollution prevention
LEXINGTON, SC — Midway Elementary School third-graders learned from a local expert how they can help prevent pollution.
On March 14 and 15, John Oxner from the Lexington Soil and Water Conservation District brought an “EnviroScape” to the school for a hands-on demonstration. “EnviroScape” is a 3-D landscape that illustrates how residential, recreational, agricultural, industrial and transportation areas cause water pollution.
The presentation, which correlated with students’ lessons about the harmful effects people have on habitats, emphasized the need to protect the environment from pollution.
