Earth day is everyday.
We did a lot of thinking and talking about the Earth this past week. We traced the Earth and some of her continents, we drew and colored what our planet looks like from space, we got our hands dirty planting seeds in the the soil our planet generously supplies. Our big project was painting newspaper, tearing it up and gluing the pieces onto a large outline of the Earth . The children were very proud of this big beautiful piece of art.
We talked about the things we know about the Earth and things we would like to know.
We had a great discussion about ways we can help take care of the Earth.
