I love that as a teacher I get to share knowledge with children. I get to help them see the beauty in the world around them and the effect that they have. While this post is a little late for this year, I wanted to share some resources for Earth Day. You can always save it to your computer and use it next year. Enjoy!
Here is a simple writing prompt for your students to use. You can get a copy by clicking on the link here or any of the pictures below. This prompt can be used to create a class book, an individual book, or a bulletin board. I kept it basic to have more emphasis on the writing and to save on ink. (I don't know about you but my printer ink always seems to be low this time of year.) The clipart featured is by Nikki of Melonheadz Illustrating. Stop by her blog here.
A teacher at my school made the cutest bulletin board with her class. I'm sorry I missed taking a picture of it. It was simple and done in a short amount of time. Click here or on the picture for detailed directions on how to create your own Earth Bulletin Board.
I love to share books all month long. Some of my favorites are listed below:Arthur Turns Green
Just a Dream
Human Footprint: Everything You Will Eat, Use, Wear, Buy, and Throw Out in Your Lifetime (National Geographic Kids)
