This emergent reader for Earth Day (and really every day) introduces children to some things that they can do to help the earth.
This package includes an 8 ½ by 11 version of the book in both color and black and white. I print this version out, laminate it and bind it together to make a big book. My students love having a big book version in our classroom library.
Also included are two black and white versions of the book that are half page to save paper. The first contains the text and images for students to read and colour. The second version leaves out the illustrations and students can work to illustrate the book. A set of cut and paste pictures is provided if you prefer to have students use that to illustrate the book.
I use this book as a springboard to making a class book where each child contributes a page. I have included a class book cover page (in color and black and white) and blank writing paper should you wish to do the same activity!
