‘Root for Earth’ Promotes Environmental Awareness

Preschoolers at The Goddard School in Cincinnati ‘Root for Earth’
to Promote Environmental Awareness

With Earth Day on April 22nd, The Goddard School preschoolers in Cincinnati along with over 460 other Goddard School locations across the country, kicked off their 7th annual Root for Earth initiative this past Monday. While the children learn about eco-friendly topics throughout the year, this week especially will celebrate learning about the environment and what it means to be a good environmental steward.

The Goddard School in Anderson Township located on 1280 Nagel Road engaged in a range of activities such as creating outdoor weather stations, building instruments from recycled materials, planting and observing flowers and vegetables and other eco-friendly projects inspired by STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math. These projects helped foster creativity and imagination while giving children the opportunity to learn about recycling, going green and preserving the world around them.

Taking place this Friday, April 21st, every Goddard School across the country will shut off all non-essential lighting for an hour beginning at 10:00 a.m. local time. A signature of Root for Earth, the “Lights Out!” initiative will save roughly 3.4 million watts of energy.
