Take the Earth Day Pledge with your students! Perfect for elementary aged students
This is a simple way to continue Earth Day awareness and to spread it to the students' home! My students love taking the pledge! I encourage them to hang it on their refrigerator to remind them to do the tasks to help conserve and protect the Earth. The pledge contains simple tasks that students can complete independently (example: turning off the lights when they leave a room, turning off the water while they brush their teeth, picking up trash in a park, etc...). I encourage my students to choose at least two tasks to pledge to do.
I use this in my classroom on Earth Day after we have completed our vocabulary and conservation activities.
I have a whole pack that targets Earth Day vocabulary that would be great for any elementary science or ELA lesson during this time of year! It was designed for 2nd-5th grade but it can be used with younger/older depending on skill level. There are a variety of activities/pages to teach the words and promote conservation.
