Happy Earth Day!
In honor of Earth Day we learned about the importance of recycling. In small group lessons, the children heard a story about recycling. They learned about what items can be recycled and then had a chance to practice sorting items into various bins. We also will be conducting an experiment to help the children see first hand why we should recycle items instead of throwing them in the garbage. Our experiment will involve a paper towel, a juice bag (think Capri Sun), and a leaf. We will place each item in a bin and fill the bin with dirt. As the weeks go by we will add water to our experiment, place it outside in the sun and mix it all up. We will check on it periodically to see if anything changes!This entry was posted in Sassafras.
