Our Earth and Greatest love of all!!

Don't you just love when you have a brainstorm?
I knew I wanted to make a large Earth for Earth Day--So I started this morning.
Back in February we made a graph for Groundhog Day on blue paper.
I decided to "REUSE" That paper and make the EARTH!  yay!  But it gets better.  I planned on drawing or getting green construction paper to make the land.  But then it hit me!
I had my class trace their hands on green paper instead--I then used their hands to make the land!
I found a map of the Earth on Google and projected it onto my Earth. I traced out the land forms and then started having the kids bring up their hands. I also broke out my much love Dots on Turquoise letters from CTP to make the header!
1.I had them write their names on their hands, so it is really "their" Earth!

2. Can you tell it's S. America?

3. North America

4. We also started our I {heart} Earth Booklet. Monday we will be cleaning up our campus so I don't think we will have time for everything in my little Earth Day Fundamentals Unit!!
I hope you can use some of these ideas in your classroom for Earth day!  In the meantime, I will leave you with an old time favorite of mine Whitney Houston, Greatest Love of All. All this talk about taking care of our Earth made me think of her.  
Have a great weekend everyone!!



I love hearing from you!!!!Thanks for telling your tale....
