This bundle is perfect for celebrating Earth Day. There are 8 different activities included for preschool aged children. The activities are listed and described below.
Earth Day Roll and Cover:
This is a simple to use math center. Provide children with dice and manipulatives to cover the numbers. After children have rolled, they will find the number and cover it. play continues until all numbers are covered. There are two sets included. The first set is for numbers 1-6 and one die the second set is for numbers 1-12 and two dice.
Earth Day Alphabet Tracing:
This is a simple to use literacy center. Print, cut and laminate the cards and cut apart. Give children dry erase markers to trace the capital and lowercase letters. I find that using a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser works best for getting the cards clean. This set includes 26 cards with both capital and lowercase letters on the same card. I have also added numbers 1-20.
Earth Day Cube Measuring:
This is a fun earth Day Measuring activity that uses nonstandard units of measure. These are designed to work well with unifix or snap cubes. There are 1o cards included as well as a recording sheet.
Earth Day Tracing:
This center is great for working on fine motor control. Print and laminate the cards. Children can then use a dry erase marker to trace the dotted lines. There are 12 cards included.
Earth Day Alphabet Clip Boards:
These were created to use with the alphabet clips that were found in the Target Dollar Spot. However, you can easily make your own clips using clothespins and writing letters on them (either capital or lowercase) These boards help children recognize and learn letters while building up fine motor skills! There are 8 boards total with an Earth Day theme. There are four boards with lowercase letters and four boards with capital letters. Depending on the level of your children they can either match capital to capital or lowercase to capital.
Earth Day Books:
These are a perfect addition to a literacy center during an Earth Day Celebration. The flip book has 4 pictures of things that can be recycled. . Cut out the three pictures along the bottom and staple to the top of the half sheet for a quick and easy center. For the foldable book, just print, fold long ways, then fold in half again! Children can then color their books and read it when done.
Earth Day Math on the Go!:
A fun way to get children involved and excited about learning, is to get them up and moving. Math on the Go! gets them doing just that! This can be used in different ways depending on the worksheet you choose. The first option is to graph the room. Children will count the objects and then graph them on their sheet. A half sheet follow-up page is also included to use with the graphing. Children will color or circle the pictures with the most/least and the one with more/less. The second option is to count the room. Children will count the pictures and record their answer on their sheet. The first worksheet option for this is to physically write the number. The other option is to color in the correct circle. Each worksheet option is included. This includes the use of ten frames, which is a common tool used in primary classrooms.
Earth Day Recycle Sort:
This center is perfect for April and Earth Day celebrations. Children sort the 24 cards into the categories of either “can be recycled” or “cannot be recycled” There are 12 cards for each category. There is also a worksheet included at the end that ties into the activity.
