We were too busy with Field Day and Egg Drop on Friday to celebrate Earth Day, so we learned about why the Earth is important and how we can help the Earth on Monday and Tuesday. On Monday we read the Important Book and talked about why the Earth is important. The students illustrated and wrote about why the Earth is important. I will post pictures of this soon. On Tuesday, we read books about recycling, reusing and reducing. The students painted an Earth with water colors and then told me what they could do to help keep the earth clean. I typed their sentences and cut apart the words and they built thier sentence on their paper.
