Inspired by the 5-day window display about the Earth, we explored ways we can help the earth with a game about trash and humans. We talked about ways that the earth can get hurt through pollution. The kids came up with a name for this: Trash Monsters. Those that loved the earth and cleaned up the trash were the Trash Fairies. We talked about how sad it made us when the trash monsters spread trash around the earth. We then acted out being trash monsters, that were taken over by trash fairies. In our discussion about this we explored the emotions about everything, and the kids really had some amazing insights about helping keep Mother Earth happy. Our book was The Earth Book.
