Grade One celebrated Earth Week this week. On Wednesday we make paper in the morning and used recycled materials to make robots and other creations in the afternoon.
Ms. Mohammed helped us make paper in her class. She had it all set up in the back of her classroom in an assembly line. Watch the video below to see us making paper.
Thanks to all the parents that helped us on Wednesday. We had some parents in the morning to help make the paper and some in the afternoon to help us make our creations from recycled materials.
I filmed the kids presenting their creations at the end of the day. They did not rehearse.
We had lots of discussions about how to protect our planet. We talked about what we should recycle or put in the garbage. We talked about Reusing and Reducing, too. I read the The Lorax by Dr. Seus and we watched the 1972 movie of The Lorax on Youtube.
