Product Description
Are you looking for Earth Day (i.e. recycling and caring for our natural resources) activities for 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grades? Here are two activities that will require students to think, categorize and perhaps do a little research too!

The first activity requires students to complete a Venn diagram, comparing two things centered around the issues of caring for our natural resources. Students are giving a list of 8 categories from which to choose. Examples: Safe materials/hazardous materials, natural/man-made, city concerns/country concerns. With this first activity, you can assign it more than once by asking students to choose a different category each time. Also, you can divide the class into 8 groups, assign each group a different topic from those given and then have each group report on their completed work.

The second activity requires students to choose 5 of 7 main categories of materials that can be recycled. After they choose, they are to list as many examples of each type as they can. This may take a bit of research. If you want to change it up a bit, you can also ask students to choose the categories and then write about how each are recycled and/or what new products are produced using them.
