On Thursday, Saklan students celebrated Earth Day with the help of some animal friends! A petting zoo was set up right on campus, and each class took a turn getting to know the animals.
While the bunnies might have been the biggest hit amongst the students, there were also ducks, pigs, and goats for the students to pet and feed. We were so impressed with how gentle all of the students were with the animals, and how patient all of animals were with the students!
A huge thank you to Ms. O for organizing this special Earth Day treat!
Outside of the petting zoo, some classes incorporated Earth Day into their daily learning. In Kindergarten, students learned about different behaviors that can make our Earth “happy” or “sad.”
In Ms. Ashley’s fourth grade class, students celebrated Earth Day by reading poems they had written for the occasion.
We love to see all our students learning how to care for and protect our Earth and all the organisms who live here!
