The Goddard School® Plants Seeds of Change During Root for Earth Week

April  26, 2013 / Week-long event featured a variety of hands-on learning activities, teaching children the importance of environmental stewardship

Celebrating Earth’s environmental resources, children at The Goddard School spent a week participating in exercises and activities focused on recycling and conserving energy during the School’s Root for Earth week. The program celebrates The Goddard School’s commitment to protecting the environment and the future of generations to come.

The Root for Earth event kicked off on Earth Day, as more than 45,000 Goddard School children nationwide turned off all nonessential lighting for one hour. Through their exploration of the outdoors, children develop their appreciation of nature along with social, emotional, physical, language and cognitive skills. In addition, the children participated in a variety of hands-on learning activities focused on conservation.

At The Goddard School, they focus on providing children a well-rounded learning experience so that they develop skills for long-term success not just in school but in life beyond the classroom. Through Root for Earth, children learned about the important impact they have on the planet in a fun, engaging and developmentally appropriate way. They believe that by teaching children to respect the planet at an early age, they will grow into environmentally responsible adults.

In addition to Root for Earth week, The Goddard School also offers an environmental conservation enrichment program called Growing Up WILD™ from the Council for Environmental Education that introduces children to nature and wildlife through a variety of activities.
