April is the month of Easter bulletin boards, Spring bulletin boards, Passover bulletin boards and Earth Day depending on your faith and your location in this world.
The bulletin boards for Easter focus on celebrating new life on earth, Spring.
Using large black canvas, the children painted, cut up and glued their own trees and flowers. Using material instead of paper is a great way to experience and explore the properties of paint on different textures.

The next bulletin board was the final class project after we completed learning about plants with these hands on kids science experiments.

We divided the class into groups of four. Each group was responsible for their own quarter of the world. Working in groups is a great was to encourage collaboration, listening, communication and patience.
Each child dictated what they wish for the earth and how we can help make it a better place.
