"We give thanks to green grasses that feel so good against our bare feet, for the cool beauty you bring to Mother Earth's floor."
After reading, as a class or in partners, have students discuss what they are thankful for from Mother Earth. Also, have students discuss how they will help to preserve Mother Earth. In honor of Earth Day, have students record these on one sheet of paper per pair or triad.
Happy Teaching and Learning!
