Planting a Tree


Just checked out the tree project at A Place Called Kindergarten. Jonelle Bell had left a comment after looking at our Tree Journal. It sounds like a great project that they had at her school. You might want to check it out.
We planted a new tree at our school last year. The kids raised the money by making and selling magnetic bookmarks from recycled cereal boxes, etc. They also made tooth fairy containers from old film canisters. It was a great lesson on reusing materials and all went to a new tree on the front lawn.

Has anyone else done a project like this? Or ... do you have an idea of another earth friendly project? Let us know and we'll make a list of ideas we can all use to make the world a better place.

Thanks so much for the shout out! Our tree project was so incredible because the kids were so involved from collecting their pennies, to selecting the kind of tree we bought to where it would be planted.
