A Pledge form went home in efforts to renovate the school’s science lab and PE program. We kindly ask that all donations be turned in by Thursday, April 28th, 2016. All students who collect a minimum donation amount of $35.00 will be treated to a bowling party on April 29th!
Prizes can also be won for students who raise money! Grand prizes include a movie and pizza party; this is for the class that raises the most money!
We began the day writing our homework in our agendas and then students discussed the various action associated with our current unit of inquiry:
Joshua planted some apple seeds
Maya planted flowers AND picked up garbage
Karina planted a garden
We then had a conversation about how important gardens are. If we grow our own fruits and vegetables, we will not need to waste gasoline going to the store and also we will save on packaging (ex: plastic and Styrofoam). When we plant flowers, we are ensuring that bees have the food that they need. This then lead to a discussion about how important bees and wasps are.
Here are ten important facts about bees:
A lot of us thought that bees and wasps do not have very important jobs but they actually do!!! So we need to help protect them! So planting gardens with flowers is an excellent way to show action because we are helping save the bees and wasps!!!
Lots of inquiry came out of our conversations this morning!!
We then had physical education with Mr. Slyk.
When students returned, we learned more about the various ways we can conserve water and electricity. We watched a fun video about conserving water:
We also looked through some books about water conservation. We learned that it is SO important to protect our water!!!! There is tons of water in oceans, lakes, and rivers but we can only drink and use 1 percent of that water!!! As a result, we need to make sure to keep our water clean and that we are saving as much water as we can!!
We also read some tips about conserving electricity. When we conserve electricity we are helping the environment AND helping our parents pay less for electricity!
Here are some energy saving tips:
We then working in our Earth Day Lapbooks. We discussed the various ways that we learned that we con conserve water and electricity.
