This is a FREE 16 question sheet about The History of Earth Day, The Impact Humans have on the Earth, and What Students can Do to help protect Earth's Natural Environment. The student sheet provides some suggestions for websites that would be helpful, and a thorough answer key is provided for you.
If you would like to present the material to your students, I have a 75 slide PowerPoint presentation that covers the information on this sheet AND MORE. It is fully animated with matching sounds effects. It includes pictures and comics for discussion, and has a fun section at the end entitled, "Recycling Around the World". To preview the presentation, click the "Detailed product description" link below. A link to the PowerPoint is in that description.
