Fieldtrip and Earth Week

Dear Parents,

This couple of weeks have been crazy filled with fun and exciting activities. Last week we had the opportunity to go to the Smithsonian Marine Exhibition in Punta Culebra where students were able to see sharks, sea turtles, fishes and touch star fish. We walked around the rain forest and saw iguanas, sloths and different types of ants.

On Monday we started talking about Earth Day and how important it is to take care of our planet. Part of our activities included Recycling, reusing materials and others. Look at this week's newsletter to learn about all of the activities we were part of here in the school.

Earth Day!

Reusable toys!

Children can sometimes get bored of using the same toys over and over again. It can become highly expensive for parents to be purchasing new toys all the time. So why not make your own toys out of reusable materials. To celebrate Earth Day, PK 3 went to the playground to use toys that were made out of old boxes, bottles, cups and so much more. It was amazing!!

Cooking Class

To continue our theme of Earth Day, we made the world using round cracker, white frosting and food coloring. The first step was to spread the frosting on top of the cracker. Then we had to place 1 drop of green food coloring and 1 drop of blue food coloring in different places of the cracker. Finally swirl both colors using a tooth pick to make it appear like it was the world.

Experiment!

Step One

Place in the bottom of a translucent cup cotton or any type of tissue paper. This time we used napkins, so we ripped them into small pieces and then placed them inside.

Step 2

When you have the bottom of you cup filled with paper, put a small amount of water.

Step 3

Place the seed inside the cup so it lands in the moist paper. You can use any type of seed but the black beans are the ones that grow the fastest. This time we used Lima beans. Let's see how fast they grow!

Step 4

Look for a place in your room where the sunlight will hit your plant. We placed our plants in the window pane so they can receive enough sunlight to grow big and strong.
