We spent the day discussing great ways to help "da erf", and spent the day picking up garbage; feeding the compost bins; planting seeds in eggshells; brainstorming ways to help the "erf" live longer; and drew pictures of all the things we would be doing do help in those efforts.
We created Earth Day hats out of our recycled newspapers, and then made sun catchers out of all the glue at the bottom of our old glue bottles.
"The sun goes through the circles and it's like a PRISON of light!" That Stanley is brilliant.
We love finding fun ways to enhance our learning, and when a great holiday pops-up, it provides us a great springboard for our lessons.
If you are participating in any activities to celebrate our amazing "erf", you can head over to the Earth Day Facebook page and add your thoughts!
And now if you'll excuse me, I have to go explain to Frank that pigs do NOT really lay bacon.
Wish me luck.
