This unit will help you teach young students about conserving natural resources. It is perfect for Earth Day, but these activities can be used throughout the year to teach these important science concepts. It is loaded with fun activities using color photos and writing/recording sheets to solidify learning. This is NOT a set of worksheets or skills centers with an earth theme. It is a collection of activities to help your students REALLY understand what Earth Day is all about.

Here's what is included:
Sort the trash: compost, recycle, garbage
Vocabulary cards and recording sheets
Nature walk recording sheet
