Are you looking for a unique and memorable way to celebrate the environment and Earth Day?
This is a bundle of 13 DIY Earth Day related projects for your kids. The Steve Trash - Trash to Treasure - projects are easy to understand, mostly easy to make, and the end product is super usable and fun. I chose 13 of his favorite (13 is a really lucky number for a magician) kid DIY projects. Each one is made from trash. This illustrates to your students the "value" of resources. Even garbage is a valuable natural resource, so we upcycle that trash and make it into something new and usable again. I'm not great at writing clear and easy to understand instructions (I'm dyslexic, so I read and write slowly), but my friend Joy is an amazing second grade teacher, so she put together this amazing set of clear and easily understood instructions for me. Here are all the cool projects your students can do this this packet of Steve Trash - Trash To Treasures.
