Celebrating Earth Day


Today we celebrated Earth Day at preschool! (Earth Day was yesterday but we were celebrating it today!)

We listened to the story ‘George Saves the World by Lunchtime’ and we picked up lots of helpful ideas how we can help look after our earth. We then looked at pictures of things we should and shouldn’t do at preschool that will help save the earth. These including thinking about recycling, turning off lights, not wasting food and hanging the wet clothes on the washing line to dry.

There were lots of little earth day activities to do this morning including a recycling activity where we sorted plastic and card into different boxes and looked at a recycling book. an earth day pairs activity, a size ordering earth day activity, colouring pages and scissor earth day practice sheets.

The Lorax

In small groups we made a tree for our friend the Lorax! We practiced writing our name on our picture, glued a tree trunk on our picture and then used different sized circles to create a picture of a tree. Some children cut out their own Lorax using scissors and we used glue to place him in the tree. The children then thought about why trees are important and Heather added these ideas onto our pictures. The children had some great ideas including ‘trees give us clean air’, ‘owls, birds, squirrels and monkeys live in trees’, ‘apples and pears grow on trees’ and ‘trees make paper!’
