This week we celebrated Earth Day by exploring the many simple ways we can help take care of the Earth!
To help inspire our Earth-friendly ideas, we read 10 Things I Can Do to Help My World by Melanie Walsh and Big Earth Little Me by Thom Wiley. We were excited to see that we are already making choices that help the Earth every day!
At the Art Center, children designed and built “Earth inventions” using recycled materials. Our Earth inventions can vacuum up litter, clean the water and sort out recycling.
We introduced many sustainable practices in our classroom this week, including recycling paper scraps and unwanted artwork, turning off the lights when we leave the classroom, and returning books and toys to the shelves to be used again and again!
We are so proud of the creativity and the enthusiasm the children showed for helping to keep the Earth clean and healthy!
