No Place like Home!
This week was a great week! We kicked off our week by starting our investigation on : Where does garbage go? Many answers varied. Some said trash can, dumpster, and some even said that a garbage truck comes by to pick up the trash. But where does it really go, after the garbage collector passes by? We talked about landfills, and once again talked about the importance of reducing, reusing, and recycling! Did you know it takes 1 million year for a glass bottle to decompose, and 450 years for a plastic bottle to decompose! So before you put it in the trash can, ask yourself, “Is it really garbage?”
We had a great fieldtrip to Safaricks zoo! Special thanks to all the mommies who joined us on this fun trip, with a great attitude no matter how hot it was! We are always thankful to have the extra help!
We had a lovely Earth day, and were amazing earth keepers! We planted trees. We made new crayons using recycled crayons. We made recycled paper, by reusing used paper. We made sure to turn the lights off when we were not in our classroom. We are making sure to take our water bottles to the playground, and that way save paper cups. No matter how little they are, they truly are making a BIG difference!!!
The earth is our home, and there is no place like home. Save the PLANET EARTH!
Teaching with love & dedication,
