Mintonye Elementary Students may be remote learning from home but that did not stop our Pioneers from learning about Earth Day on April 22, 2020. From kindergarten to fifth grade, students had lessons at home to complete in order to learn how to protect our earth. Some kindergarteners created art projects from recycled items found around the home. Other kindergarten students sorted trash and compost items. There were “litter patrol” kindergarteners who went for a walk around their neighborhoods to pick up trash. Mrs. DeGolyer’s kindergarten students also went on a scavenger hunt around their house looking for the recycle symbol on products their family uses. Mintonye first graders learned about picking up trash and planting new trees to help our Earth. Grady M. also recycled boxes by taking them to the recycling center. Many students did a scavenger hunt around their neighborhoods to celebrate Earth Day. Teachers also shared books and videos with the students about Earth day and our planet. Ms. Leuck’s second grade students created Earth Day Posters to share with the class. Mrs. Johnson challenged her fifth graders to get out there and do something for our plant such as, pull weeds, clean up trash, or plant something. Earth Day was a fun day for all involved, students and teachers. We can celebrate Earth Day together at home every day!
