Earth Day is on Wednesday, April 22nd. Each year we celebrate by having the first graders at our school create an object from recyclables. It can be a craft, decoration, or used for a new purpose. It’s assigned as homework. A “how to” writing assignment is included in the project.
We want to create an awareness of the importance of taking care of our earth. We get the whole family involved with the project. Even younger and older siblings can help.
We display the projects in our cafeteria. We invite all the classes and our parents to view them in the morning on Earth Day. The kids and families come up with some pretty creative ideas!
I created some writing activities for the week of Earth Day.
