Earth Day

Team 1 is gearing up for the Earth Day 2015 celebration on April 22.
Earth Day is the largest, most celebrated environmental event worldwide. Earth Day and kids are a natural combination - - with their sense of wonder about the environment, as well as their creativity, Earth Day is the perfect writing topic.   
Following the example of the Lorax, students were asked to "speak up" with their ideas about the environment. After brainstorming ideas about recycling, pollution, and how to preserve our planet, students expressed their ideas in poetic form. The inner-poet in each student shared a melodic verse on ways to treat the planet better. 
Students created a craftivity for a hallway display to raise awareness of Earth Day.

Unless Someone Like You . .

Earth Day is right around the corner, and students are heeding the words of Dr. Seuss' favorite eco-activist -  the Lorax.  

This Seuss character has found new friends in Room 100. 

Earth Day

by Ethan Rusk

Don't create pollution
Instead- -devise a solution.
Reduce! Reuse! Recycle!
We all have a life cycle.

We need to save the trees.
So come and help us, please!
We need to take a stand.
Choose to lend a helping hand.

Save trees; don't displease.
Let's work together - you and me.

Thank you, twinkl, for sharing the faces template.
