During our current unit on Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, students in the Excellence class have been taking action in making positive changes within our own school community. Their first challenge was to find a way to make our recycle shed a more exciting and informative place to be during outside play. They absolutely loved this challenge and I encourage you to talk to your child about what they have done in our recycling area!
Their next course of action was to revamp the school garden. It was beginning to look a little sad (not being watered regularly or cared for enough). As a class team, they worked together to create their own garden wall- both in woodworking and during integrated program. They took old recycled milk containers and reused them to create their own flower boxes, which are now filled with herbs and flowers.
From this day forward, it is up to them to continue to care for their schools garden, which will include watering plants everyday! By taking these small actions, they are helping to create a more beautiful world around them:)[envira-gallery id=”789″]
