Earth Day and Where Is the Green Sheep?

Day 2 of the week - The theme this week is Books! Then letters of the week are W, w, X.
Learning Activity- I read the book Where is the Green Sheep? by Mem Fox to Connor and Lauren. Then, Connor and Lauren each chose a color. I cut a construction paper cloud usingtheir chosen color. They glued the shape to the form sheet (Mailbox Magazine February/March 2009). Next, they decorated the shape so it resembled a sheep from the bookand named the color of their sheep and where their sheep might be. They wrote the information on the provided spaces.
Project - Coffee Filter Earth- To celebrate Earth Day, we discussed how we can take care of our earth and how important it is to take care of earth. They came up with; shut off the water and the lights, recycle and throw away trash. Then we talked about what earth looks like from space Directions: paint a coffee filter blue and green with water color paints. Let dry. Glue painted coffee filter onto black construction paper (use a glue stick), write Earth Day on black paper with white chalk. Materials Needed -water color paint, paint brush, water, coffee filter, black construction paper, glue stick, white chalk.
