Primary 1โ€™s Earth Day Promises ๐ŸŒ

On Friday 22nd April 2022, it was Earth Day. This special day began in America in 1970 and is a time to think about all the different ways we can look after our planet. After learning a little more about Earth Day and reading the story, I am Earth by Rebecca and James McDonald, we decided to paint our own Earth Day characters. Then we carefully thought about the things we could do keep our planet healthy and we each made our own Earth Day promise to help with this.


To share our art work and promises with you at home, we made our own short video using Chatterpix. To make sure our videos were a success, we had to a few things to consider:


๐ŸŒ First we had to take a photo of our character with the iPad.

๐ŸŒ Next we recorded our promise using a loud, clear voice.

๐ŸŒ Then we added a background, frame and stickers of our choice.

๐ŸŒ After that we carefully typed our names and changed the style and colour of the writing.

๐ŸŒ Finally, we saved our videos to camera roll.


I have popped the videos below to share with your family at home. I do hope we will all be able to keep our promise. It really is a very special one to make. ๐Ÿ˜


Great work as always Primary 1. ๐Ÿคฉ
