Second graders in Ms. Lenza’s class at Setauket Elementary School learned all about Earth Day during a joint project with science teacher Ms. Morseman and art teacher Ms. Muzzonigro. Students first learned about Earth Day and its importance, as well as the many steps they can take to help protect the planet. To celebrate Earth Day, the second graders started green bean seeds right from the classroom using a damp paper towel and Ziploc bag.

Students designed mini greenhouses for their seeds to grow in. The greenhouses will hang in the windows of their second grade classroom for students to observe and log the plant’s growth over the next few weeks. The project connected the second grade science unit on plant adaptation to an art project, in a hands-on, creative way.
