Friday, September 23, 2011

Autumn Equinox this event has been around for millenia, but how often do we explain it to our kids?  For many of us, the streets where we live were lined up to match the Fall and Spring Equinox, so driving to and from school and work today (this week) has been tough with the sun right in our eyes!!

I have been involved with PLT for several years, and I love their activities.  In fact, Declo Junior High was awarded a mini-grant from Idaho PLT just a few weeks ago.  I will post pictures of the finished project when we get it done.

So thanks Michelle fo posting something fun to celebrate this day.

The equinox will happen at 3:04 am (Mountain Daylight Time) on 9/23/11. To celebrate the day and the season, take students outside to enjoy a PLT activity! PLT #21, Adopt a Tree, is a great way to start the school year. Students can return to do PLT activities related to "their" tree all year long! Here's a link to additional Adopt a Tree resources to support your PLT guide.
