Description

The resource has been updated to include digital and print access using the new interactive digital layer tool. I have created my own version, available to buyers, but buyers can create their own version too, depending on their needs for their students.

This informational text resource is designed for both History and Science for grades 9-11 and strong grade 8 students. Included are:

--- three texts on the history of Earth Day (An Idea is Born, Earth Day 1970, and Earth Day Since 1970)

--- a page of comprehension/opinion questions for each text, as well as a vocabulary activity

--- a video activity which has questions to accompany the 1970 ABC News broadcast on April 22nd (approximately 9 minutes in length) that is available here: http://abcnews.go.com/Archives/video/april-22-1970-earth-day-9779207

The video is divided into five segments about different cities across the U.S. There are 5 sections of questions (comprehension and opinion) and one added writing and research activity for students to complete concerning the current Earth Day.

--- Answer keys for all the activities.

This product is available in a bundle with Earth Day and the Environment – 15 Graphic Organizers, at a discounted price. The bundle can be viewed here:
