Don't Pick the Flowers! (and other important messages from the children)

As part of a school-wide initiative, the morning class helped clean up the garbage in the school yard. This led to discussions about littering and the damaging effects it has on the natural environment.

The afternoon class was very excited about the beautiful flowers growing in our courtyard. Subsequently, they were quite upset when they found that the flowers had been picked. Although they tried to revive the picked flowers by bringing them into the classroom and giving them soil, water and sunlight, the flowers died.

In an effort to bring awareness to the greater school community about littering and not hurting the flowers, the children created posters. These included messages, such as "Don't pick the flowers!" that are relevant to them that want to share with others.
