Our Mother Earth; our most important resource! Although planets are a bit of an abstract concept children are never too young to learn about our earth, its beauty and importance.
Continuing our A to Z Tot School series we’ve done the planning and provided seven days of play and learning activities. The play activities take a little less preparation and could be best for the toddler age group. The learning activities will introduce concepts, take a little more direction and could be best for preschoolers.
