Regrowing Vegetables from Scraps

Observing how some vegetables magically regrow from scraps is a fascinating plant science project that we did this week in class. We are watching a few items regrow in our classroom. We are always checking the water level and recording the changes.

MELTED CRAYON ART - PART II

Last week in our newsletter we showed you how we pasted the recycled crayons on a "canvas" that we made with cardboard pieces. This week we worked on the second part of this project. Ms. Ginni showed us how to use the hair dryer to melt the crayon pieces. We did this part with Ms. Javi's help and supervision.
This Melted crayon art will be also part of our ART SHOW!!!

THE WORLD IN OUR HANDS!

What better way to get us excited about Earth day than with a great Earth Day Play Dough recipe?
This was a fun way forus to explore what the world looks like, where we live in relation to the rest of the world, and just have a fun sensory and hands-on learning.

MAKING IN RECYCLED PAPER

Shredding paper is one of my Ms. Ginni's favorite things to do, so this time she decided to recycle our shredded paper at school instead of sending it off to the recycling center. It turned out to be a fantastic lesson in reduce, reuse, recycle…perfect for Earth Day!
  • First, we got the shredding machine from the elementary school office and we learned how to use it with supervision.

Then, we filled our blender with the shredded paper and we added enough water to cover it all. We knew that we wanted our finished paper to be blueish, so we added a few sheets of shredded old artwork (on construction paper) to the mix.

We blended the paper shreddings and water into a fine pulp.

EARTH DAY OUTDOOR CELEBRATION

We took our Earth day celebration outdoors on a bright and sunny day and played some games that our teachers prepared using recyclable materials. We had a lot of fun re-using some items that we recycled from home.
