PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Earth Day is just around the corner.

Recycling bins, Save the Bay signs, and that all-too-familiar green circle of arrows—all part of our daily lives. Children raised in this era of environmental responsibility have an advantage over past generations. Most children know the routine—remove the cap, rinse the bottle, and place it into the blue tub. Toy swap parties provide not only an afternoon of play with neighborhood friends, but they are also a way to replace and recycle toys that children have outgrown.

This resource from Rainbows to Snowflakes is designed as a cross-curriculum resource to address the environmental impact caused by items used for daily living. Students will conduct a six month-long decomposition project, culminating with an excavation activity and a flower planting session. While this unit is recommended to take place over a period of at least 6 months, many lessons included within this unit can be used as stand-alone activities. Prepare for Earth Day in April by teaching and encouraging environmental responsibility.

Included with this resource are 9 detailed lesson plans, printables, links to useful internet resources and information, and a section on hints and suggestions for implementation.

Subjects addressed include science, math, geography, and language arts.

Lessons that address counting, measuring, using ratios, skip counting, using the scientific method, reading a grid map, and implementing the concepts of recycling and repurposing every day objects are included with this resource.
