Planet Earth

Our final StoryCrafters session had an Earth Day focus. We heard the story Ants in Your Pants, Worms in Your Plants by Diane deGroat, about Gilbert, who cannot decide on a school project for Earth Day. The book mentioned lots of ways kids can help our Earth, like recycling, conserving water and energy, composting, and planting.

We looked at some satellite images of the Earth and all the beautiful greens and blues that could be seen from space. Using tissue paper scraps and a waxed paper base, we tried to create an abstract of our planet.
We added a black border, then trimmed our collage to fit. Look, a beautiful suncatcher to remind us of our beautiful Planet Earth!
