Great teaching moment today Smile While viewing an Earth Day video on the topic of "Reduce, Reuse and Recycle", I noticed that the landfill images were comprised largely of trash from packaged food products and plastic shopping bags. I asked the kids to look closely and make a connection between the trash in the landfill and things they throw away at home or when they eat out. Every one of those kids made the connection and we talked about how they could do things differently. I then asked them if they could make a connection between the health of the earth and the health of our bodies, based on what they were seeing on the screen. Questions like "How much trash is generated by having an apple for your snack?" "How about a package of cookies?" "What is the impact on the earth from these 2 snacks?" "What is the impact on your body?" Very interesting dialogue.
