It’s Earth Day….

We celebrated Earth Day this week in our classroom.  We talked about how important it is to take care of our Earth by picking up litter, saving energy, turning off lights and water when not in use, recycling and planting trees.  I showed them a photo of what  Earth looks like from space so that they could see how beautiful our world is and that all you see is blue and green.  We need to protect our Earth so it stays a beautiful and clean  place to live.

Sing With Me

What Can We Do?

(to the tune of “A Tisket, a Tasket”)

It’s Earth Day, it’s Earth Day

What can we do on Earth Day

To make the world a better place,

Let’s [pick up trash] on Earth Day.

Continue singing and add the following: plant a tree, recycle, save water, save energy

Recycling Song

(to the tune of “The More We Get Together”)

The more we all recycle

Recycle, recycle,

Oh, the the more we all recycle,

The better Earth will be.

Aluminum and paper,

Glass, cardboard and plastic.

These all can be recycled

By you and by me.

Poetry

An Earth Day Helper

Be an Earth Day helper

Do a little bit each day.

Remember not to litter,

But to throw your trash away.

Be an Earth Day helper

With recycling plans.

Once cleaned, these come back to you-

Bottles, papers, cans.

Story Time

We read “It’s Earth Day” by Mercer Mayer and “Miss Fox’s Class Goes Green” by Eileen Spinelli.

Craft Time

We made a large hand print Earth to celebrate the world we live in.  We all took turns making green and blue hand prints to fill in the circle.  Once dry I hung it in the hallway for all to see!
