Earth Day will be a big event at Linton Springs Elementary School. In fact, the school's Earth Day activities will actually span three days: April 22, 24 and 25. The theme will be monarch butterflies.
Kindergartners at Linton Springs will make stained-glass butterflies and learn about the life cycle stages of butterflies. First- and second-graders will build a butterfly feeder, and they'll plant and mulch the garden beds. Third-graders will also make a butterfly feeder and weed invasive plants from stream site and surrounding areas on the school grounds.
Fourth-graders will make butterfly-themed origami and work on the newly constructed solar beds that were built by students from nearby Century High School. Fifth-graders will make butterfly-themed origami, as well, and will install the wire butterfly sculptures they made in art class.
