Rowntree Montessori Schools’ (RMS’) takes time each year to celebrate Earth Day. RMS uses a cross-curriculum approach to teaching, and we include a strong focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). In addition to this, we encourage our students to find solutions to real-world “wicked problems”. Specifically, one of our grade 3 classes has learned about sustainability and the environment. On April 22nd, the grade 3s made a special Earth Day video for all of our students and their families. RMS teaches our students the importance of being Earth Day advocates. Finally, it is important to note that our students learn the importance of recycling and protecting our planet for generations to come.
