Kids learn about the environment in Earth Hour activities | Environment
ANDERSON TOWNSHIP, HAMILTON COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - Kids from the Goddard School in Anderson Township learned about the earth and the environment in a series of activities preceding Saturday evening's Earth Hour.
On Friday more than 100 students were there to turn off the lights (except for emergency lighting) for an hour from 10-11 a.m., part of the national Earth Hour activities. Throughout the week, kids participate din other learning activities. They made musical instruments of recyclable materials, and they were visited by Allison Tait, a Cincinnati Parks naturalist from California Woods, who talked about ways to care for the environment and the animals.
“We think this was a great way for children to learn, in a hands-on manner, the importance of saving energy and the environment,” said teacher Carol King. “Our students stepped up their awareness for the environment by being creative in their art projects, science lessons and even snack time this week!"
