Earth Day Art Projects and Activities 🌏

To celebrate Earth Day, we made sure to encorporate the 3R’s in our projects. We REDUCED, REUSED, and RECYCLED.

Here are some activities we did!

    Tree Branch Painting

Nursery worked as a team to paint the branch we got from scavenging outside the classroom. We made sure it’s clean and started painting. We had so much fun.

ART BOOK

This quarter, we will create an Art Book for Kindergarten. This Art Book contains art concepts and artworks Kinders learned and made throughout the whole year. We will certainly take one step at a time and do our best to make our book a meaningful and an artistic portfolio.

    BOOK COVER

Kinders were tasked to draw a picture on how they go to school everyday.
They were asked to include relevant details and drawing concepts they learned.
