Although we believe Earth Day is every day...today we have reminded ourselves how beautiful and precious our planet is. There are varied works and materials in the classroom that teach children about Earth's place in space, the structure of the planet, continents and oceans, life on Earth and important ways to keep our planet in good shape. We have also enjoyed Earth's gifts to us: fruit in our fruit salad and warm sunny weather for our outdoor lunch! Gratefully wishing you A happy Earth day every day!
Every year our children experience the process of dying and decorating eggs, and every year we try to make it a little bit different. This time, besides coloring with store bought kits, we have sliced and cooked red cabagge and onion skins to produce a beautiful natural dye. Also, we have ventured into printing designs on our eggs using nature elements in our classrooms such as flower petals, clovers and leaf cutouts. For detailed steps look at the picture descriptions in the gallery below.
The highly anticipated Egg hunt took place on the playground in the afternoon. Everyone was all smiles when they found their own egg.
