Earth Day Craftivity and anchor chart to teach your students some of the ways they can be a friend to the Earth.
UPDATED to include the year 2017
Your students will make a girl or boy Earth Day friend and then use a graphic organizer to help them plan and then write a response based on one of the prompts included with the unit. There is also everything you need to make an anchor chart to use while conducting a mini-lesson about Earth Day.
This unit includes:
-pieces to make a boy or girl craft. There are a number of different head options.
-information about Earth Day (the date and three facts)
-a section explaining the prefix "re" and a place to write definitions for reuse, reduce and recycle.
-prewriting graphic organizer (one with picture clues)
-three writing prompt options.
-a page without the year. I will update each year with a new date.
-anchor chart pieces.
