PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle…even Replenish and Restore!


A creative way to teach environmental education for Earth Day. Decorate your classroom and teach your kiddos about the Three R’s – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - and the additional R’s – Replenish and Restore. Whether hanging from the ceiling or sitting on the shelf, your kiddos will love creating and putting on their own personal touches on these unique Earth Day Globes.

Paper lanterns are great for developing fine motor skills such as: folding, coloring, painting, gluing, cutting, listening and following directions. Embedded within this Earth Day project there are several activities to extend your students learning about the Earth.

These units are designed in a Mix and Match format. You are able to pick the pieces that you want, depending on the needs and the abilities of your students. There are so many different possibilities and various cutting templates.

There are so many ways to create these World lanterns using glitter, paper layering, leaves, shredded paper, tissue paper or garbage collected from around the playground.

This unit can be approached in several ways. Either as a quick Earth Day project that will take about 90 minutes to complete. Or as long, in-depth project that will take upwards of a week to complete. In my classroom, creating the basic lantern will take my kiddos about 90 minutes (coloring and assembly). Adding on each Big R arrow will take me an additional 45 to 60 minute block of time. I like to spend time reading, brainstorming, writing and drawing with my students about each of the Big R’s. I use this Earth Day lantern project as the center piece for my Environmental Education.

Included:
• Printed World lantern templates
• Numerous Earth Day trim slogans
• Big R arrows in various styles ….check out the preview to see everything included!
