Last April we focused on our environmental responsibility; we learned about pollution, recycling and made seed bombs for Earth Day. This year I didn’t have time to plan activities for Earth Day because it was Culture Week but I still decorated the English Board with a couple classes.
Instead of repeating the environmental awareness theme from last year, I wanted the students to focus on their roles on this Earth and know that they each play a big part. The theme was “We’ve got the whole world in our hands.” There are so many versions of this song nowadays, here is a different version I was thinking about teaching the younger classes.
With the pre-kindergarten class we painted our hands blue and green to make a globe, it didn’t come out super clear but the kids had fun. The second grade class has been learning about jobs so we wrote “When I grow up I want to be…” their answers and pictures were darling, here are a few to share.
