Earth Day & Plants

We had a VERY busy week in 1st grade.  Our days seem to just be zooming by.  At the beginning of the week we celebrated Earth Day.  Earth Day was officially last week {April 22}, but we were so busy with all of our Bunny Day activities . . . so our celebration was a little belated.

Here’s a little peek at some of the fun things we did!

We read lots of books and made a book of our own about ways we can take care of the Earth.  DSCN4951

We also made these cute little posters to hang up around our house and school.  DSCN4955 DSCN4956

We listened to a story about what it means to go “GREEN”.  Then we made a class book by writing about how each one of us could go “GREEN” to help our Earth.green picture

We also made some cute little Earth Day critters to decorate our classroom with. DSCN4940DSCN4941

This week we also did lots of activities that taught us about the parts of a plant and what plants need to grow.DSCN4969

We ended the week by spending an entire day doing math and reading activities that were all centered around a popular “plant” themed fairy tale.jack and the beanstalk

We had a LOT of fun reading several versions of the classic. DSCN4999

We worked with a partner to use a Venn Diagram to compare two of the versions.DSCN4978DSCN4982

We also practiced using a dictionary to locate words from the story.  Then we put them in ABC order on a beanstalk art project.

Our final activity was writing a “Jack” and the Beanstalk story of our own.  It was all about the adventure that we had when we climbed the beanstalk.  We wrote about who we saw, where we hid, what we stole, and what happened when we got to the bottom of the beanstalk.DSCN4996DSCN4997    DSCN4994 DSCN4995
