Did you leave the water running while you were brushing your teeth this morning? Do you recycle your water or soda bottles? Did you turn off all the lights before you left the house this morning? Earth Day is celebrated today, April 22nd. It is a time to celebrate gains we have made and create new visions towards environmental progress. Earth Day is a time to unite around new actions and to act to protect our planet. How will you celebrate Earth Day today?
Come by the media center and check out Earth Day by Linda Lowery or any of our other titles on protecting our earth. Also, I have added videos to a folder titled Earth Day in School Content in United Streaming for teachers to use. Log in to United Streaming, click My Content at the top, click School Content, and then open the Earth Day folder.
In the end, we conserve only what we love. We will love only what we
understand. We will understand only what we are taught.
-Baba Dioum, Senegalese poet.
