Product Description
Here's a quick, easy and fun "craftivity" you can do for Earth Day, which is appropriate for a variety of grade levels.

To help celebrate, I've knocked a dollar off the price for a limited time.

Read my background information about environmental footprints, and share a few things with your students.

I've added a checklist of things even a child can do to help reduce their footprint.
You can do this as a whole-group discussion.

I’ve also included a page of links with lots more interesting information.

There are several options for the “craftivity”.

For that “keepsake” effect for younger kiddos, or to add a nice variety to your display, have students trace their foot with their shoe on.
Provide an assortment of colors of construction paper.

I’ve also included 5 other footprint options, as seen on the cover.

My personal favorite is adding the paper “straps” to make a flip flop, then gluing a flower for that extra bit of 3D pizzazz.

Older students complete the writing prompt, starting on the front of their shoe, then completing their thoughts on the back.

Children can glue their shoe to the large earth pattern which they’ve colored, or older students can make the 3D earth sphere, by gluing the 3, smaller earth-circles together.

Add a school photo for that finishing touch.

For an awesome display, punch holes, add yarn loops, and suspend from the ceiling or along a hallway wall as a border.

I'm Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you an exciting Earth Day.
