Earth Day 2010

I have never explored Earth Day before, but after searching around, the emphasis seems to be on protecting the earth for future generations and increasing understanding about issues that affect the earth today.  Personally, I will be focussing on trees and their importance and wood and it's uses, with a side step into making paper, for the reason that trees are a popular theme around my setting after tree-planting recently!  Other themes that you could focus on could be recycling or water. 
Our focus this week has been on making paper..... the children asked how paper was made and we have been chatting about it and we recycled some scrap papers into new paper today.  It worked well and even the littlest children were fascinated with the process.  I will post on our efforts tomorrow!
