Earth Day

Nightingale is having an Earth Day assembly Thursday morning at 9:15 am. Family members are welcome to attend.

This morning we discussed how we can help the Earth. We came up with the following list:

I showed the class two videos. We then worked on creating postcards for the school’s Earth Day postcard contest. One side of the card needed to be illustrated. I asked the class to take their time, add details, and include a background. The results are spectacular! Students needed to include a message on the other side of the card which directly correlates to the illustration.

I have booked a field trip for the class. Friday May 31st we will be going to the Vancouver Landfill in Delta. We will have a tour and see first hand where our trash ends up.
