This Earth Day lesson and activity includes a reading comprehension passage about the holiday and directions to create recycled paper wildflower seed bombs that look like little planet Earths. It also includes teacher directions with a link to a demonstration video, student directions with photos, an answer key, a scoring rubric, and a force copy link to a digital Google Slides version.

Reading Passage - The reading passage explains that Earth Day was started by a senator from Washington named Gaylord Nelson as a holiday to educate people on how to take better care of the Earth. It happens every year all over the world on April 22nd. People learn about ways to protect the planet and do activities to help like picking up trash, planting trees, and conserving energy.

Recycled Paper Seed Bombs - This download includes directions with pictures, and a video demonstration to create recycled paper seed bombs in honor of Earth Day. Students reuse scrap paper and old extra copies to create the seed bombs by blending the paper with water and food coloring and packing it full of wildflower seeds. They use blue and green to make their seed bombs look like the Earth. Then, they plant them and wait for the wildflowers to bloom!
