Activity Purpose

The purpose of this resource is to provide an interactive and engaging way to learn about caring for the world, conservation, and Earth Day. This activity involves reading comprehension strategies such as cloze reading (using context clues), organizing information, and finding specific details.

As students read the fact cards, they have to hunt for information. This information-seeking process will involve reading and re-reading of the clue cards. The activity, therefore, mirrors the close reading skills you will be teaching your students throughout the year.

The students then synthesize their knowledge and understanding using the Earth Day puzzle poster activity.

In this pack you will receive:

⭐️Eight Fact Cards

⭐️Eight puzzle pieces with a range of reading comprehension activities

⭐️Ten central earth designs

⭐️Answer sheets

PLUS a FULL Digital Option for Google Classroom, Seesaw and Microsoft One Drive.

These puzzles come in two sizes. Choose the size that fits your purpose!

***When you download this resource, it comes with both British and US English spellings and printing sizes.***
