Our preschool and kindergarten children enjoyed learning about “Earth Day” and what they could do to help mother earth.
Many items, e.g., banana and orange peels, paper, cd’s, bottles and cans, eggshells, a used band aid, a yogourt cup with its seal etc., were left in a pile for the children to separate. Staff provided three labeled containers with the words – compost, recycle and garbage, pasted on top.
The activity required children to separate the mixed up items and place them into the correct container. Children worked in groups discussing what they could do to place them in the correct container. Many active minds worked together to ensure that they achieved success.
Our little crusaders surely learnt the value of taking care of mother earth and are so proud of their efforts.
