The Ort Report
Ort is defined by the Merriam Webster Dictionary as a morsel left from a meal; scrap. At Nature's Classroom students work hard to reduce the amount of ort at each meal. This year our students (as part of the larger Nature's Classroom community of 100, started their week with 8 pounds of ort after their first dinner together. By the next day, the group had reduced that amount to 1 pound, and reduced it further as the week went on. Each meal at Nature's classroom ends with an Ort Report. Here is Summit's Upper Elementary class sharing the Ort Report at Friday Morning Meeting.
