When my Head Start class of 3-5 year olds were asked, "What can we do to take care of the earth?", I heard these responses....
-flowers...put 'em in a plant.
-I do the garbage at my house. I get it outside. It wasn't hard! We can show people how we pick up our stuff!
-with babies and boys.
-Go to the store and get some milk.
-We can throw the trash in garbage cans.
-Pick up the garbage.
-Don't throw trash on the ground! We should pick up the books. We shouldn't keep going on a dog or cat on the road.
-Have you ever found a baby bird out of a tree?
-We can plant our own flowers.
-Turn off water!
-I like the earth!
Whether we're 3 or 93, let us all do our part for the earth! Remember Earth Day not just on April 22.
