Planting Seeds for Earth Day

Planting Seeds Earth Day

Children in our Parenting & Child Development program planted seeds in honor of Earth Day

The socialization classes, which are geared toward children 0-3 years old and their parents, involve activities that nurture age-appropriate development.

For Earth Day, that meant decorating planters out of recycled bottles, filling them with soil and planting seeds in them.  The group also did an activity honoring the four elements of earth, air, wind and fire.

These activities encouraged parents as well as children to be good stewards of the earth.

In addition, children in grades K-3 who participate in our after school program learned about conservation and created a mural in honor of Earth Day.

LSA families celebrate Earth Day with activities for every age

April 22, 2016 – LSA families celebrated Earth Day with activities that focused on the beauties and bounties of our planet.  Parents in the Language Exchange class and children in homework help worked on a mapping project – discussing natural resources from around the world.  Toddlers in our Parenting and Child Development program explored textures of objects from nature and made a special field trip to Thomas Jefferson Park to continue their discoveries.
