The preschoolers had a wonderful time celebrating Earth Day all last week. We learned all about our environment and took a closer look at some of our planet's environmental issues. Then the children went a step further by putting their knowledge to work by coming up with solutions to help solve these issues. Some solutions the children came up with were to to use less garbage at lunch time, plant seeds, reuse & recycle, and clean up litter in our own neighborhoods. It was wonderful to see the children's love for their planet come out with such enthusiasm! The children were so excited about the fact that we were able to cut our lunch-time garbage down by 90%! We hope they keep up their new found efforts. Here are some fun pictures we were able to capture this week. Enjoy!
Rocco's grandparents came to visit the preschoolers for Rocco's VIP, and they brought flowers for all the children to plant:
...they also brought in Blue Bird houses that Rocco's grandpa made by hand!
Mrs. Elicia did a wonderful lesson on water pollution in which the children got to actually take a look at how hard it is to clean-up litter from the water:
And of course we ate Earth Day snacks:
And we did a little bit of fun Earth Day yoga:
...and we had fun doing a neighborhood trash clean-up:
And to end, I will leave you with this Native American Proverb that touched our hearts:
"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children."
