Bring environmental literacy and the history of Earth Day into your classroom!

This engaging and informational newspaper-style text is great to use around Earth Day and can be used over the course of a few days. Bingo sheets are included and have questions from the entire newspaper. Students read the informational text and then answer questions from the “newspaper” in the bingo grid. The bingo grid comes in 22 different versions, meaning the questions are arranged in a different order. Having each student use a different version of the answer grid will allow you to reinforce the content of the informational text by playing a game of bingo. The questions range from vocabulary, finding key details, and digging for text evidence.

Content of the Newspaper

The content of the "newspaper" has information about the History of Earth Day.

The following topics are included.

  • What Caused the Oil Spill
  • Earth Day's Birthday (The first Earth Day )
  • Environmental Policy Changes caused by Earth Day (Clean Air Act & Amendments,The Clean Water Act, The Endangered Species Act)

How to Play:

The first page is an answer key, which can be used to play the game of bingo. Cut up each square, place in a Ziploc bag or container of your choice and call out questions. Students must answer the question correctly and have 5 in a row. Up, down, or diagonally. Students can use counters, erasers, Starbursts (our personal favorite), or any type of treats to keep track of the questions called.
