How Can You Help the Earth?
To celebrate Earth Day, we asked the York Avenue and Early Learning Foundations preschoolers how they could help the earth. Here is what they said:
“Not throw garbage on the floor. Put it in the trash can.” – Oscar, age 3
“I can help the plants grow by planting the seeds in the soil.” – Bronsyn, age 4
“I can turn off the water when I’m done washing my hands and turn off the lights when I’m done in that room.” Alexander, age 4
“I can recycle” Ariella, age 4
“I can eat all my food and not waste it.” Jackson, age 5
“I can draw on the front and back of my paper.” Ryan, age 4
“I can shut off the water and not waste it.” Harper, age 5
“I can recycle glass and plastic.” Ben, age 5
Earth Day Art Projects:
Ms. Rachel of York Avenue Preschool wrote a poem about Earth Day:
Today is Earth Day, April 22 (Twenty Two)
We want to help the Earth, we hope you do, too.
Recycle, plant, or ride a bike,
Turning off the lights, the Earth does the like,
Let’s work together to protect our Earth, our home,
Happy Earth Day…and that’s our poem!
Happy Earth Day Everyone!
