Children at The Honor Roll Preschool in Missouri City explored a bug’s life in celebration of Earth Day Friday as they released more than 1,000 ladybugs throughout the schoolyard and back into the environment on plants, flowers and trees. Students dressed for the occasion in the likeness of ladybugs, wearing red and black colors and antennae. Students also planted several types of herbs, vegetables and flowers in gardens around the school. Leading up to Earth Day, students are learning that ladybugs serve as a natural pesticide by feeding on insects that could otherwise harm the health of gardens, trees and shrubs.
