Kelli Cosgrave, a kindergarten teacher at Seven Generations Charter School, recently contacted the Emmaus Patch on behalf of her students, following a classroom unit on natural resources and ways to protect them.
Cosgrave's students asked her if they would be able to write a short story to share with the community their ideas for helping to protect our environment.
Here's what Ms. Cosgrave's class wrote:
Did you know we learn about natural resources in Kindergarten?
Did you know we need your help to protect all natural resources?
We have been investigating natural resources around our school and we will always do our best to take care of them.
We hope you read our thoughts so you know how to care for them too.
We need your help!
- Make sure you don't pull out grass.
- Don't litter. Find a trash can.
- Don't pick flowers, just look and let others see them.
- If you cut a tree down, please plant another one.
- Pick up any litter you see and throw it away in a trash can.
- If you don't have a compost bin, you should get one. It helps!
- Don't pull branches and leaves off of trees.
- Don't dump any waste in ponds and streams.
- Leave our resources the way you find them.
Please help natural resources last forever! Our insects and animals need natural resources. Kids need trees to climb, and they help us breathe.
Let's all work together to protect our natural resources and help the Earth. Seven Gen needs you to help the Earth too!!
Thank you for your help!
