Instructional Coach-Earth Week and Distant Learning

Celebrating Earth Week at home

Recycling: Finding a good place to empty out the recycling bin. Sort the types of recycling into categories (metal, glass, paper).

Up-cycling: Reuse things you have in the home. Save metal food cans- can make a wind chime.

Explore the Earth: Take a sensory exploration outside. Feel different types of rocks, leaves, sticks and soil. Identify flowers and rocks. Observe which things are natural and which things are made from man.

Save the Earth: How much water do you use when you brush your teeth or wash dishes. Catch the water in a bowl and find out. How many rooms have a light bulb on but the room is empty. Try to use a cloth towel in place of a paper towel or a napkin.

Cycles of Water: Make a terrarium out of the materials from the home. A glass jar, a little soil and small plants. Water it, close up the jar and watch how the water condenses over a few days and rolls back down into the soil.

Don't Waste the Food: Many vegetables can be replanted after you use them. Try putting the stem of a head of lettuce in a bowl of water or the save the roots from green onions and plant them in a pot with soil. Make bread pudding from bruised apples: https://coolmomeats.com/2019/04/03/how-to-make-bread-pudding-easy/
