Today we took some time out of our normal class schedule to observe Earth Day. First part of the day students prepared Earth Day slideshows using Google Docs. Below is one of the many slideshows that was prepared by my students.
In addition to today's events, Mr. C's students brought us 6 frogs, and we decided to create a habitat for our frogs. Students were asked to conduct research about a frog's habitat and living habits in order to prepare an appropriate living environment for them.
The next job was to go scouting for food for our new found friends. Students were asked to collect bugs for our frogs.
So what did we accomplish for Earth Day? Nothing ground breaking, we really didn't do anything to save the environment or stop pollution, but we did have fun with nature. I feel like my students were able to acquire some excellent information about Earth Day during our slideshows research and they were able to have a little fun in the great outdoors today by looking for frogs and food.....I think that should count for something.
