Last Thursday was our long awaited First Annual Earth Day Extravaganza.  We had been planning for this for months.  In October, my school applied for and was granted the LOWE'S $5000 school grant.  We are using the money to make three different learning gardens around our school.  We have had a lot of community support in helping to get the land ready and all of the mulch and stones to our school.  Thursday was the big day for the kids to do their part.  Below you will find some of the fun things that my kinders got to do on this special day.
Decorating grocery bags to be used at Food Lion on Earth Day.

We painted rocks to put in the mulch around the different gardens.

We got to make a really cool birdbath.

We met Smokey Bear!

We planted a tree.

We got to make flower pots out of newspapers.  As you can see, we made flower hats to help keep the sun out of our eyes.  :)

Looks like fun. My PTA just mentioned something about Lowe's grant. I'd never heard of such a thing.
