As the green movement gains steam, so does Earth Day, held each year on April 22. We’ve partnered with PBS WUCF for our Earth Day Celebration.
PBS Kids Spring Campaign, Explore the Outdoors encourages kids to literally EXPLORE outside. We’ll be utilizing some of the activities PBS provides for anyone to download from the website.
Recycling is a part of life in our area. Our counties and cities provide HUMONGOUS recycling bins that are actually larger than the trash bins. Children are raised to recycle! We decided to reuse toilet paper holders, acting as our planting container. Downloading the master “Dot’s Green Thumb,” students will color the label that will be placed on their individual toilet paper roll.
Computer/Tablet Games Available:
- Dinosaur Train River Run
- Super Cleaner Upper
- Rescue Eotopia
- Make a Mangrove (perfect for our area!)
- Bug Catcher
- Wild Kratts World Adventure
- Dinosaur Train A to Z
- Plum’s Photo Hunt
- Fizzy’s Lunch Lab: Hectic Harvest
Although our school is located within a neighborhood, we will EXPLORE OUTDOORS with a Nature Treasure Hunt. Using those handy dandy toilet paper cardboard rolls, we’re making binoculars to zero in on plants and insects!
We’ll start the day with the PBS Kids Explore Outdoors video found HERE ending the day with a much anticipated Wild Kratts Episode. PBS will premier new episodes of WILD Kratts on April 20, 21, & 22 at 5:00pm ET with new Dinosaur Train episodes April 20 & 21st at 11:00am ET.
