Homeschooling On Earth Day

earthdayGenesis 2:15  “The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.”

That’s the verse we will be concentrating on for our devotion/discussion and lead in for our other Earth Day lessons

Make a Difference – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

REDUCE:  Since there is always room for improvement for energy conservation at our house, we’ll be brainstorming ways to cut back on our usages.  (I sure hope someone will feel motivated to fix the toilet that flushes on it’s own what seems like hundreds time a day for the past week.)  Here’s some tips and resource for energy conservation for kids

REUSE:  We keep a large box of paper towel rollers, scrap paper, small boxes, plastic containers, rags, and various jars and bottles to use when we want to work on crafts, building model projects, or to make games.  However, the box is just a big mess presently.  Earth Day is a great excuse to dump and reorganize that box.  And, make some plans to use those items.  Fran (our family’s favorite “substitute teacher”) is our first go-to source for using recyclables!

RECYCLE: Our town has a recycling center.  We’ve visited several times to drop off “trash”.  And, we toured and worked there a few years ago with our local homeschool group.  I think I’ll check into scheduling another group visit.  If you’re not able to visit a recycling center, you can watch a video or two.

What might it look like is we didn’t reduce, reuse, and recycle

Have a happy Earth Day,
