2021 Earth Day Celebrations at Fay
In preparation to celebrate Earth Day, our Kindergarten Leaders have been engaged in a project-based learning unit focused on environmental responsibility and stewardship. To begin the project, the Kindergarten Leaders committed to answering this driving question:
The Kindergarten Leaders met with recycling experts from Texas Pride Disposal, one of Fay’s community partners, and learned more about how people in Houston generally reduce their environmental impact. After taking discovery walks around campus to record observations, our Kindergarten Leaders began envisioning and planning how to best answer their driving question.
Watch the video below to see their exceptional learning and leadership of this initiative in action! Also, watch the April 22, 2021, Fay News episode to see our 2021 Fifth Grade Leaders engage with the Kindergarten Leaders to reveal more about the process. At Fay, we put the children first and have them lead the way.
