Green Schools has been engaging with students for over 2 months now, and we’ve had a lot of questions about planting trees.  A youtuber named Mr Beast was challenged by his audience of over 26 Million subscribers, to plant 20 million trees. Mr Beast is known for taking on any challenge, so they partnered with the largest tree planting organization in the world, Arbor Day Foundation. For each dollar they raise, they plant a tree.

Last week, I had the opportunity to visit my youngest group of learners yet! I spent the morning at Atlantic Montessori School, engaging with the Toddler (18 month-3 years) and Casa (3-6 years) groups to explore ways we can protect our earth by saving energy.
