As a responsible teacher who tries to include all aspects of the world into her classroom, I thought and thought about how we could celebrate earth day and then it hit me, we celebrate earth day EVERYDAY in and out of our classroom. We spend so much time outside exploring the world, at parks, at nature reserves, planting our organic garden in our yard, taking care of the animals we find, reusing materials, eating and drinking from reusable containers, using our library, talking the city bus everywhere we go, talking about litter and picking up trash on our walks, using water and paper products responsibly, having recycling and compost in our classroom as well as in our garden, talking about large corporations and factories and why it is so great to wear second use clothing and buy used toys. The environment in our classroom, gives the sense that it is earth day EVERYDAY and that is what earth day should be.
