Earth Day-Hurray!!

Some of you may not know that I am a K-5 Technology Teacher 3 days a week and one of my favorite subjects to teach is environmental science.  This year I am even more excited to teach it thanks to The Lorax by Dr. Seuss.  This book can be used for any grade because of all the messages buried inside its pages.  I also highly recommend the movie, my 4 year old and I loved it.  The movie carries a very powerful message as well, "Let it Grow!"

As we are approaching Earth Day I thought I would take a moment to share some activities and websites that I use with my students and daughter.  Since I have so many I am going to limit it to some of my favorites.

Websites to visit:
  • Make a truffula tree using pipe cleaners and pom-poms.
  • What would you say if you could speak for the trees?
  • The Lorax Activity Book by Energy Star
  • Get a Daily Lorax Activity
  • Make an Earth Day Flag
  • Do a clean-up outside-pick up trash, weed, etc.
  • Plant a tree, garden, etc.
  • My daughter and I usually spend the day having a picnic lunch and picking up trash at the public playground near our house.  Every little bit helps!  Hope you find this information useful and enjoy your Earth Day!
