Happy Earth Day!


Today, April 22, is Earth Day! Join me in Class Connect for a fun lesson on all the ways the earth recycles...

and how we can recycle too!

Speaking of recycling, check out our expertly sorted trash!

Remarkable recycling!

Here are some fun Earth Day movies, crafts, games and activities that I think you will enjoy!

 Earth Day

By Jane Yolen 

I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.
Each blade of grass,
Each honey tree,
Each bit of mud,
And stick and stone
Is blood and muscle,
Skin and bone.

And just as I
Need every bit
Of me to make
My body fit,
So Earth needs
Grass and stone and tree
And things that grow here

That’s why we
Celebrate this day.
That’s why across
The world we say:
As long as life,
As dear, as free,
I am the Earth
And the Earth is me.

These are the Banana Slug String Band songs I was talking about in class.

Turn up your speakers!

Now get outside! Go for a walk! Enjoy the beautiful day!

The Lorax wants you to.
