Happy Earth Day

We had an amazing day today.
The sun was shining and we had fun checking out our frog eggs and butterfly larvae.

At the art table I had placed
scraps of laminating in the
shape of circles. Plus small pieces of green and blue cellophane. And, of course, lots of glue.

I found a book called
The Earth and I by Frank Asch.

It has beautiful colourful illustrations and simple text.

Today was the first day for our Spuds (in a tub) to be put outside.
The children wrote our class name on the tub, then wheeled them down the hall and to the front of the school.

Finally we got together with our grade 4 Big Buddies to share books and plant flowers outdoors.
