Local Preschoolers to Release Thousands of Ladybugs on Earth Day
Local Preschoolers to Release Thousands of Ladybugs on Earth Day

From Kathleen Shaffer:

 Chesterbrook Academy locations throughout Northern Virginia will host ladybug releases in celebration of Earth Day on Friday, April 22, 2011 at 10:30 a.m. Pre-kindergarten students at each school will release approximately 3,000 ladybugs into the environment. During the ladybug releases, students will wear ladybug antennas created as part of their Earth Day studies.

Throughout the week, students learned that ladybugs feed on aphids (plant lice) and other insects that are harmful to gardens, trees and shrubs. Chesterbrook Academy teaches the importance of community and exploring nature at a young age.
