It showcases the history of Earth Day and the significant contributions made by Rachel Carson and John Muir to the conservation and environmental movements. In this engaging activity pack you get:

An informational text about Earth Day, followed by a set of text dependent true/false questions and crossword puzzle.

Two biographies : Rachel Carson and John Muir, each with a set of text dependent and inferential comprehension questions.

Answer keys are included for all. Each text stands alone. You have the option to use as many or as few of the articles as suit your purpose and time frame.

A set of quotes about nature and a corresponding writing activity.

A postcard writing activity. Two easy to photocopy templates included - one with a vintage postcard style and the other contemporary.

An excerpt from one of John Muir’s popular tales. Great for teaching about personification or may be used as a “finish the story” activity.

Two contemporary blackline coloring pages geared toward older students.
