Earth Day Fun! Hi Friends! I’m just quickly stopping by to share the updates I’ve made to my Earth Day packet! To begin our unit, I’m going to place the “true” poster on one side of the classroom and the “false” poster on the other side of the classroom. Then, on the document camera, I’m going to display these “Shocking Facts Photographs” for all to see. I’m going to read each sentence aloud and students are going to have to determine if they think the statement is true or false by moving to one side of the classroom. The nice thing about this activity is that you have the choice of printing the pictures or displaying them on your computer.

Experiment ~ Can You Undo Water Pollution? In this experiment the kids learned just how hard it is to undo water pollution. We grabbed a bucket of clean water, some household trash, vegetable oil (to stand for toxic oil spills), tongs, and a strainer. The kids took turns adding trash to the water. After our water was yucky enough they tried to remove all of the pollution using tongs and a strainer.

This is the first article in a series to help kids understand more about our food system. Today we’re mapping our fruits and vegetables: with a little research in the supermarket, the kids are discovering where our food was grown and how long it traveled to get here! We recently packed a notebook and pen with us during a trip to the supermarket, on a quest to see where our fruit and vegetables were grown. Luckily, most of the supermarkets near us label the origins of the produce, and my kids were able to gather their data quite independently.
