Celebrating Earth Day at Marklund
Students at Marklund Day Schools celebrated Earth Week doing hands-on science experiments all about nature.
Staff and residents at Marklund Wasmond Center in Elgin worked together to come up with ideas to clean up outside and then painted beautiful pictures of the Earth.
Freddie, the fish, was a big hit with the Elgin students as they learned about water pollution and natural resources. Don't worry, Freddie always ends up clean and in a new home at the end of the lesson.
At the Marklund Hyde Center in Geneva campus, the crafts were out-of-this-world exciting for Marklund Earth Week.
Students and residents at Marklund Philip Center in Bloomingdale celebrated Earth Day with 3-D art projects and games.
Marklund Day Schools, serving students ages 3-21 from early childhood to transition, provides an environment conducive to learning through specialized curriculum, positive behavioral interventions, and individualized student support.
