Today we celebrated Earth Day by planting a little grass seed Ag in the Classroom style. With a pencil, I wrote the letters of each of our names on sheets of construction paper. My daughter then used glue to trace over the penciled letters.
Then came the fun part. She took grass seed and dumped it over the paper covering all of the glue.
Then she shook the grass seed off of the paper and wha-lah...a grass seed name! Now we just have to plant them. I can't wait to see our little family of names growing in grass!
Also, the daffodils made their grand appearance today! I think they knew it was Earth Day and wanted to provide me with a teachable moment for my kiddos. It's so nice to finally have some color in the yard!
By the way, looking at those pictures, our lawn looks pretty bad. Will the green ever return?!?!? Looks like a side benefit of this little project today is that all the seed we spilled will add a little green to our poor lawn.
