April Update

Hi everyone! I know it's been a long time since I updated. I've been busy with my family so updates on the blog will probably come once a month.

Tomorrow, Monday, is our Earth Day Symposium! Special shout out to Ms. Sandner for organizing it! I introduced our class' compost bin on Friday and the class was incredibly fascinated with the red wigglers. Red wigglers eat veggies, fruits, coffee beans, and other kinds of trash and produce compost. Our compost bin will be on display at the symposium. We also created a 3D compost bin using mixed materials--
The kids used model magic to create red wigglers
Red wigglers nestle in newspaper spreadings-so we reused newspaper for our compost collages
K.W pastes newspaper onto her collage
I.F working on her compost collage
