Ms. Riccardi's Second Grade Class
Norwood Avenue Elementary School
Port Jefferson Station, New York
The Wartville Wizard


Ms. Riccardi's Smarties really enjoyed hearing The Wartville Wizard by Don Madden. We know that littering is bad for the Earth but we wanted to make sure people knew what other things are bad for the Earth. We used Kidspiration to make a web of things that can hurt the Earth. Then we thought of ways people can and do help the Earth.
