To celebrate Earth Day, the preschoolers at Concourse House, in North Fordham, were outside today sporting their winter coats and planting flowers in the backyard.
Though some of the students were a bit hesitant to get their hands dirty, eventually they all got into the action (some with the help of rubber gloves). Executive Director Manuela Schadt said she hopes the activity will help children understand how plants and flowers grow.
Children in the preschool programs are residents of the community and also residents of Concourse House, which provides transitional housing for women and their children. This summer the preschool classes will also plant a vegetable garden.
Check out the pictures above, and let us know, how did you celebrate Earth Day?
