Today, we celebrated Earth Day and the Family Groups took part in three different activities. First, the students learned about environmental issues, sustainability, and discussed the consequences of their choices and behaviors. They built planters made out of recycled plastic bottles and hung them by the middle school lunch area. Please check out their beautiful work when you are on campus!
Next, they looked at marine species from the San Francisco Bay that were brought on campus by the Marine Science Institute. The instructors introduced the students to the diverse aquatic life, helped them understand science, and foster a responsibility to protect the environment.
Finally, the students did an activity on this month’s Family Group theme that was Wonder. The students looked at beautiful photographs of nature and silently reflected on each of them. Later, they discussed how awe and wonder made them feel. It was a fun day of learning how we can help save our planet. Every day is Earth Day!
