CLARKSTOWN, N.Y. -- The kindergartners of Woodglen Elementary School recently celebrated Earth Day with a week of activities.
Festivities kicked off as North High School science students helped the kindergarten class learn about protecting and preserving earth with outdoor centers. Next, the kindergartners created earths, had a garbage relay, played nature bingo survival tag and more.
On Tuesday, April 26, the class participated in the Keep Rockland Beautiful program and cleaned the school environment.
The students took a class trip on Wednesday, April 27, to the Hillburn Transfer Station to learn about the significance of recycling daily from Jennifer Sheridan. She showed the MRF plant and how plastic, paper and cans are bundled into one-ton bales and sold to companies for reuse.
On Thursday, April 28, the students planted seeds in recycled cans that will be given as Mother's Day gifts.
The celebration concluded on Friday, April 29, with performances of "The World Is a Rainbow" and "Earth Day Helper" before the entire school for Woodglen Spirit Day.
