Little kids are amazing. They soak up new information like sponges, and they’re wildly enthusiastic about the things that they love. It was my privilege to visit with a group of first-graders recently; we talked about the vital connection between life and Earth, emphasizing the need to keep our planet clean and healthy. Despite the broadly abstract nature of the topic, the students took the talk to heart, creating essays and pictures about why it’s important to take care of the Earth. Click on photos to enlarge.
These are just a few of the terrific essays that were turned in; all of the kids did a great job and asked plenty of thoughtful questions. A special thank-you to Abigail, Aleycia, Patrick, Ozzy, Teagan, Gage, Addison, Alexys, Jacob, Marcus, Carston, Zach, Evan, Austin, Hannah, Makiya, Samantha, Zackary, Gavin, Lane, Kaylee, and Tommy. If you’d like to continue the conversation with your own kids, consider picking up a copy of What Does It Mean To Be Global? or any of our other eco-friendly, green titles.
Why do YOU want to help take care of the Earth?
