Celebrating Earth Day

April 24, 2015 at 9:31 AM | Posted in Family Learning, Student Stories | 3 Comments

Earth Day PACTOn Wednesday, learners and their children at Crestwood Elementary celebrated Earth Day with a Parent and Child Together Time (PACT). They read Handa’s Surprise, a culturally diverse children’s book, as well as planted tomato seeds in small containers to take home and observe. They also sang a song about the Earth, our planet. Happy Earth Day!

– Thanks to LCNV instructor Elizabeth Magee for sharing photos and news from Crestwood throughout the semester

  1. I’m so pleased to see Handa’s Surprise used in the a family learning classroom. It’s a great book with wonderful illustrations, humor, and diversity witg numerous extensions activities and lessons.


  2. It’s a really great book; everybody loves it because it is full of surprises. Every page has a new surprise. Carisa is right about all the extensions, and I’m thinking of writing some of them down to help other teachers get started when they explore this book with their learners.


  3. I just read the book for the first time and loved it! This website has some good teaching ideas. Thanks Carisa and Elizabeth!
