Our students are the future caretakers of our dear planet Earth! At Trevose Day School and Neshaminy Montessori, this commitment applies to not only Earth Day, but every day!
The students school-wide gathered for a full day celebration of Mother Earth, taking great pride in their school yard by clearing leaves and sticks, as well as weeding and preparing the garden beds for planting vegetables and flowers. Lessons in growing flowers, herbs and vegetables, creating natural bird feeders and hummingbird feeders too, and caring for our rabbits and chickens, filled the students’ Earth-centric day. Students even took time to take a break and read our animal friends a story or two! All of the children also gathered for eating healthy and delicious fruits and veggies together in the barn. The wonderful assortment to choose from excited them!
These projects will continue throughout the rest of the year, and into our summer programs. The children show excitement and dedication when decorating poles with scrap yarn, making a colorful tepee to play in at recess. They will also continue to water and monitor their seeds, replanting them outside when the plants grow big enough.
