Earth Day Craft

Each year on April 22nd, people all around the world celebrate Earth Day.  It is a day focused on promoting awareness, showing appreciation, and taking care of our environment.  After learning about this special day, students decorated a coffee filter as the earth and shared ways they could help the earth.

We colored, then we sprayed.

Planting

Written by Summer and Alex

Today, our class made a garden.  Mr. Cardona helped us put holes in the mini tub that we made our garden in.  Then, we put the rocks in.  Next, we put very dark soil in, and more soil, and more soil.  Last, we put light soil in.  The whole class got to rub all of the soil down because it looked like a mountain!

Then, when it was all down, we put a line across the dirt with  a stick.  We planted lettuce and spinach!  When the class got into the classroom, our teacher made signs for the plants.
