We read the following books that relate to Earth Day this week:
My Forever Dress by Harriet Ziefert is a wonderful book about a little girl whose grandmother reuses fabric from her favorite dress to make new clothing for her. In the end she has to hand down the final dress to a cousin.
Barn Savers by Linda Oatman High is a great book about a father and his son who salvage wood and many other elements of old barns. This books paints great word pictures of what is going on while they work on one particular barn during the day. JDaniel loves this book.
Recycle Every Day by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace is another great book. It takes a little bunny through a week on watching how her family recycles. The little bunny has to decide what family does that she wants to illustrate for a poster contest at school.
The craft we did was a collage. (Yes, we did a collage last week too.) JDaniel was given triangles and squares from old wrapping paper to create his collage. It was fun to use recycle the old paper in the project.
