Pre-K Takes Earth Day to Heart and Mind – A Lesson in Reuse
This Earth Day all of the Pre-K students worked with their families to collect a variety of packaging including boxes, bottles, cardboard, and paper rolls. The students then used these items in a variety of lessons including a two week lesson on transportation.
The students used cut pool noodles to print railroad tracks and drew on cut boxes to create interlocking roadways. They covered milk containers and food boxes to create homes and shops. Then they pieced together a variety of cars and trucks.
In the next unit the students used old soda bottles to create jet packs. With left over paper tubes and cardboard, the student created measurement people and played a measurement game. In the last week of the year, the students will use the remaining packaging to play store. Now the students look at packaging very differently, they don’t think where should this be recycled, but rather what can I make out of it.Full Story
