Last Friday we had Relay Recess all day. The kids learned ways to take care of themselves and walked for a cure for 2 and a half hours!
The first thing we did in the morning (after painting our faces with lavender ribbons to remember all those who are fighting or have fought a battle with cancer) was learn about the importance of sun screen and taking care of our skin. The kids got to see what happen to a hot dog that did not have sun screen on it and a hot dog that did have sun screen on it and the effects of heat on the hot dogs.
When we got back into the classroom, we made cancer ribbon cupcakes with M&Ms.
