Creation, Earth Week & Planting

Great day in school today!   Started by learning about Creation (afterall how do you have Earth day without the creation of Earth...lol)   We are studying Earth Week, Easter & planting all week long...


I love these Bible Flash Cards that I picked up for FREE at a garage sale. Some lady had a table with FREE stuff on it...and there they were...50 of them..all in perfect shape!  



Kids got a surprise for Earth Week...recycled lunch bags for our field trips. Instead of using baggies...only problem is, when I opened them, the plastic smelled soo bad, I am letting them air out..



Best coloring Z has done in a LONG TIME.


Zachary read this to us.



Cute song we sang and are learning for the week...tune of "This Old Man"


Hope you can read it...


Molly did some more in her Planting/Gardening Lapbook.


Zachary took a break from Multiplication today and did a fun money worksheet (had the flowers on it so I used it for this unit)



More lapbook....


Read this cute book to the kids while they colored their Earth pictures...


THEN ON TO THE PLANTING....


We did it up on our deck, since Sam was napping inside...


Both kids got some new gardening gloves today!


Looks like she is ready to operate!

Z picked carrots & lettuce to start with...using our egg shells that I saved so we can put them into bigger pots once they start up....


Molly picked wildflowers and basil (I think)



Then we took our kidney beans that we started last week in the cups (see blog post here) and planted them.


Hard to see in the pictures, but there are two leaves on one side inside this bean...real cool the kids thought




Putting seed stages in order...

All in all great day in school!

This has been a great week to talk about God's creation as we talk about Earth Day too.

You have been busy with wonderful activities this week!

Happy Easter! Thanks for linking up!
Great learning - love the hands-on gardening!

We begin our flower/plants/garden theme next week - I have been looking forward to it for weeks!

Love your seed stages order activity!
Love the connection of Creation to Earth Day! We grew some grass seeds in egg shells and then decorated them with faces so the grass would be their "hair" and made them part of our Easter decor. Thanks for linking up at Feed Me Books Friday!
