What Will We Be Doing This Week?????

This week we will be learning about caring for the Earth in celebration of Earth Day on Wednesday. We will talk about recycling, reducing, reusing and composting. On Friday we will be watching The Lorax. We will also be making a craft that requires an empty tin can (any 14oz can will do). Please send in a can by Wednesday of this week.
