Here’s a quick, easy and super-fun
little something you can do for Earth Day
To help celebrate, I'm knocking a dollar off for a limited time.
After studying the importance of taking care of our earth and discussing the fact that even little children can make a difference, I’d give a few directions, and tell my Y5s that they were going to be part of Mrs. Henderson’s “Kids Care Cleanup Crew”
(Name badge included.)
Each child got a pair of non latex gloves (You can buy a pack of 50 at The Dollar Store.) and armed with their own plastic grocery sack to put litter in, we’d hit the playground when no one was using it.
My kiddos absolutely LOVED running around picking up all sorts of debris. They were always very proud of themselves.
Afterwards, we’d hit the bathrooms to wash really well and then settled down to watch some sort of Earth Day
video clip. (Link in packet)
Our “craftivity" that day was “Reach Out!”
My students were always amazed at how many ways even little kids
can make a big difference
Older students can complete the writing prompt
(2 options) and glue it to the back of their poster.
Younger kiddos can color their poster-poem certificate
and glue that to the back.
Punch a hole at the top, tie on a yarn loop and suspend from the ceiling.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy being part of your “caring kids clean up crew” too!
