Today we have focused on why we celebrate earth day and the importance to protect our planet. We discussed our favourite activities to do outdoors and why these are important to us. Some children recognised they enjoy the park, fields and the beach. We explored different ways to help protect our planet such as planting, recycling and saving water. We painted/ drew a picture and recognised it was the earth. We also made our own globes too. We studied a map and learnt where we live in the world and different countries too. This sparked a variety of questions from the pre school children.
We practiced our maths skills and matched all the numerals with items in our world around us. We also focused on our fine motor skills too and used recycled bottle tops to match onto our world globe.
Happy Earth Day
