This Earth Day pack has all you need to celebrate our planet's special day!

Included in this pack:
♦ (2nd - 3rd, maybe 1st with help) Reading Comprehension about Earth Day
♦ Higher Level (4th - 5th) Reading Comprehension about Earth Day
♦ Earth Day Poster Activity for groups or individuals
♦ Facts about Pollution/Trash (Great to use with posters, these facts are like "Each minute one million plastic bags are used!", these are general, but 3 out of 12 specifically name the US)
♦ Earth Day Pledge - Could be attached to writing assignment or illustration of action the student wants to take, great for hallways!
♦ Three ideas for Earth Day Crafts reusing materials. These include: toilet paper roll people, a recycle symbol mosaic, and a terrarium!
♦"Earth Guardians" situation cards for students to act out how to handle certain situations where people are not making good choices about helping the Earth!
♦ Keys for both of the reading comprehensions!

This pack includes individual, group, and class activities. These ideas and activities are easy to tweak to fit your needs in your classroom. Please make sure to read and plan ahead for activities using recyclable/reused materials. Parents are a great source for these, as they will most likely have these items lying around!

I hope you enjoy this item. If you have any questions, concerns or ideas for custom work, please contact me! Thanks and stop by again soon!

Happy Teaching!
