First grade has been busy preparing for Earth Day. We have been learning a lot about our home planet, Earth. Students have learned that earth is made up of land and water, and that there's a lot we can do to help protect it. It all started when the first graders participated in Science Day On March 27, 2014. They learned that one way is to use the 3 Rs; reduce, reuse, and recycle. They each built a vehicle or character, out of recycled products. Before we displayed it in our school auditorium, each student got to present and talk about their finished project. It was interesting to see how much we can do with recycled items. Students decorated their very own stick person, for our bulletin board. We placed all of the stick people holding hands around one of our painted plate globes, which we made earlier to learn about our earth's continents and oceans. They learned that in order to make our world a better place, we need to work together. After hearing so many great ideas like planting a tree and reducing water use, students added their pledge to a cloud to be good keepers of this great world give. To us by God.
