To bring ideas about caring for our Earth to a local level, and fitting for 2nd graders, we focused on learning about bees (and other pollinators) and how to care for them! We’ve learned about the crucial role they play in helping to produce so much of the food we eat. The ideas we talked about for how we can care for bees and our earth are to stop using toxic pesticides, plant more pollinator friendly flowers, and to inform others about these things! It was important for me to have my class participate in this project to expand their thinking about caring for our Earth and to have the unique experience of painting a parachute!!
