Can you think of some things that are green? Green is the color that represents a healthy planet Earth. When you’re on a bike, a bus, or a train, what can you see that’s green? At today’s Transit Tots, we’ll sing a song, hear a story and then go on a scavenger hunt for things that are green in your home!
