Recycle! A Handbook for Kids

To learn more about what they could do on Earth Day and every day, second graders in Mrs. Rosati's class read Recycle! A Handbook for Kids by Gail Gibbons. They also used other sources including an insert in our local newspaper, the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle and an issue of Scholastic News. To summarize their learning, students made graphic organizers using Kidspiration 2. Then they created beautiful spring and Earth Day images with Kid Pix 4.
