Here's a quick, easy & fun
little something you can do for Earth Day
To help recycle, students trace the cat or dog
template on an interesting looking section of the newspaper
, or page in a magazine
, that's free of pictures.
They cut out their animal, mount it on a sheet of construction paper and add facial features
I've included "headers" for each one, as well as dog/cat tags, which can be tied on a piece of ribbon or yarn to make a collar, and add a bit of 3D pizzazz
Older students can complete the writing prompt
: Why "It's a dog gone good idea to reduce, reuse and recycle"
or why doing those things makes "'purr-fect' sense"
on the back of their paper.
Completed projects make an adorable Earth Day bulletin board
I've included six, "reduce, reuse & recycle" photo posters
to introduce the lesson, then use in your display.
I'm Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a wonderful Earth Day
