This is a great activity to do with your Spanish students on Earth Day! Don't forget, Earth Day is on April 22!
Talk with your students about Earth Day and the things that they can do to help keep our planet healthy. Go over Spanish vocabulary describing ways to take care of the Earth.
- Reducir, Reutilizar, y Reciclar (Los Tres Erres)
- Apagar las luces
- Montar en bicicleta
- Usar menos plástico
- Reducir basura
- Tomar el autobús
- Usar menos agua
- Usar menos papel
Watch my favorite YouTube videos about taking care of the Earth and about life and nature, (links included). Then, complete four simple worksheets that review this fun Spanish vocabulary including a Mi Camino Spanish original poem dedicated to Earth Day.
Option: Rather than simply coloring “El Día de la Tierra,” have students color, cut out, and paste the Earth onto the hand for a more symbolic and hands-on activity. (Print last two pages on white cardstock for this activity.)
