Keeping Nature Happy
Cleaning the Neighborhood
Go outside and pick up garbage. Talk about how you can keep the earth clean!
Tip: Talk about what garbage is safe or unsafe to pick up and what to do if you come across unsafe garbage.
Why is this important?
It is important to teach children and ourselves to be respectful of the things in our environment, to be conscientious of what our actions can do to it!
