Celebrating the Environment This Holiday Season

As the holiday season approaches, we gather together to reflect on the past year and all of the things we are thankful for. One thing we should include on this list is the bounty that Mother Nature bestows on us with every season—from the blue skies, to the much-needed rain, to the sun rays that stretch over us while we're at play, to the wintry evenings that make us thankful for the warmth of family and friends. Why not use this time to emphasize to young ones the importance of caring for the environment? Live by example and take steps to help children be environmental stewards at an early age. This correlates to Preschool POCET™ Developmental Guideline SE10: Demonstrates awareness of community helpers and environment.

To start, look to Environmental QuickSource® for FREE activities that will help you connect conservation concepts to classroom activities. This convenient resource will help you explore ways to educate children on the importance of caring for the environment to help make the earth a healthier place. And Discount School Supply also offers a plethora of other FREE eco-resources such as tips, activities, and products that bring us closer to keeping the Earth a beautiful, sustainable place.

Remind kids that we can all take steps to reduce our ecological footprint. Together, we can make a difference. Small steps lead to great strides in helping care for the planet and ensuring that young people have a healthy place in which to learn and grow.
