We turned Earth Day into Earth week. We celebrated our home planet all week long.
One art project was to create a globe with blue paper cut into a circle and some green paint for land. The biggest land form was made with a big green handprint 🙂
The kids made Happy Earth Day cards for their parents. It was a good project for practice writing, cutting, and assembling.
We also made Earth Day collages and booklets.
Here are some photos from the week:
We learned about the three R’s: reduce, reuse, and recycle. The kids reused paper towel rolls and cardboard boxes to make inventions, binoculars, wands, etc.
I had a tray filled with items they could use: chenille stems, stickers, ribbons, google eyes, streamers, hole punch, tape, glue, etc.
