This week, we celebrated Earth Day! Accordingly, we discussed ways we can take care of the earth, or 'environment' and why it is important to do so. We did so through reading "Every Day is Earth Day" on Starfall, watching Brain POP Jr.'s "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle", and participating in many related activities.
We practiced cutting and strengthened fine motor skills by making "Recycled Collages" with recyclables contributed by families and friends!
We realize that we need to help keep our earth and environment clean; therefore, at our sensory bin, we sifted through the sand, and worked to make it clean as we picked up 'trash'.
We matched uppercase and lowercase-lettered earths.
We pretended to work at the "Recycling Center" as we sorted various objects for disposal between paper and plastic items.
Last, but certainly not least, we also learned that we can help our earth and environment, by planting trees and/or flowers; therefore, we planted sunflower seeds!
