Hurray For Earth Day!
I wanted to get my students thinking about the environment as part of our study of the Earth, so I developed a set of Earth Day Task Cards. The overall theme of the cards deals with how kids can have an impact on their environment, but there are Earth facts included as well. My goal is to raise their overall awareness of environmental issues - not just on Earth Day, but every day.
I'm always amazed at how quickly kids get on board when it comes to uniting for a worthy cause. Perhaps we'll see the seeds of environmental responsibility continue to grow and blossom.
