Earth Day the Super Powered Way

I kicked off our Earth Day celebration with my kiddos by making Rice Krispie earth balls.

Marvel Girl learned that the earth’s surface is made of water and land.
And lots of yummy goo.

At school, I am subjecting my older students to learning the history of Earth Day. They are finding and underlining the most important information and concepts then answering questions verbally.

Meanwhile, younger students are creating Litter Bugs.

The kids are working on following directions, describing the steps, retelling the steps, and explaining how we can re-use our trash for other purposes.

And everyone gets to experience the joys of our water-colored earth.

Again, we are working on following and retelling directions. Plus, this activity gives ample opportunities to talk about the ocean and continents.

Need an annoying little Earth Day jingle to run through your head until next year’s Earth Day? This Starfall computer activity will be a hit with your kids. Maybe less so for you.

Enjoy teaching about this gorgeous planet and some of the (many) ways that we can make a difference. Today and everyday!

    You know what gets me? In the teacher workroom, there were literally *hundreds* of copies being made with worksheets and coloring pages for Earth Day? Huh? Wha’? So…. to SAVE our environment, we’re printing off worksheets on clean, unused paper to color in…?
