What a week it’s been! I have to send a giant thank you to everyone for making the first Wings, Worms, and Wonder blog hop so successful!!
I hope you enjoyed the projects by each of the guest posters. I know it was fun for me to see how they interpreted my activities.
Here’s a fun sample of an acrostic poem created by a group of children at the Beaches Children’s Garden! Poetry is so fun in the garden and the nature journal!
And this week is eventful as well! We have Earth Day, it’s Environmental Education Week, and of course the giveaway winners from the blog hop are being announced!!

Seeds to Sprout:
What are you doing to celebrate Earth Day? Check out this post I wrote on 10 Ways Not to Save Anything for Earth Day and get ideas for getting children (and grown ups) outside enjoying and bonding with nature – instead of being burdened with the overwhelming, abstract, and developmentally inappropriate task of saving! Have fun outside this Earth Day! Let them love nature before we ask them to save it, as David Sobel says!
Maybe watch the Lyrid Meteor Shower to celebrate Earth Day! Get the details here! I think Mother Nature approves of sparking sense of wonder on Earth Day!
Live in the North Florida/South Georgia area and looking for a fun family activity this weekend? Well head out to Tree Hill Nature Center for their Butterfly Festival Saturday, April 25, from 10-4! I will have a booth there! Get the details here.
Find lots of resources to use for EE Week and beyond here. But in all their “greening STEM talk, remember the A and make yours STEAM. The arts should never be excluded from education, and it’s not just me saying this, even the Mythbusters think so – and they bust myths for a living! So let’s bust that myth that the arts aren’t important in education!!
