Last week, we decorated rocks for Easter, learned about rabbits and hares, hunted eggs, and practiced using a compass. Walnut Grove Secondary students taught about plastic pollution and how it affects wildlife, especially in the oceans. Earth Day is a great time to think about our choices as a part of the problem or the solution to environmental issues. And also to just enjoy and celebrate how beautiful and wonderful our little corner of the planet is.
