Sixth graders sing about loving the planet!
Here in Ecuador, Earth Day is celebrated on June 5th, and this year, the Los Algarrobos School was invited to participate in a local Earth Day Fair!
Along with several other groups and organizations, our school presented our love for the planet and natural environment! To start off the program, our sixth and seventh graders each prepared an upbeat song to share with the crowd!
Afterwards, each group involved explained their work, including Planet Drum Foundation, the Rio Muchacho Organic Farm, and FOCAZNOM, a local group dedicated to organizing fair prices for organic products. The children's group "Rejoice Canoa" also sold second-hand clothing and prepared juice with the blender bike! All the while, there were games and activities to keep the kids engaged and happy.
Overall, the fair was a great success! The kids learned, played and sang their hearts out! As our first activity for the Environmental Education Program, we think it was a great success!
Stay tuned! On June 22 we have our first field trip with the graduating 7th grade class to visit Planet Drum's tree nursery and take a nature walk in a virgin Dry Tropical Forest.
Also visit our website www.jamesdeanbyrdfoundation.org to learn of our other ongoing activities, including our annual raffle, happening now.
