Earth Day is one of my favorite themes to cover with my kiddos.  I just love it, and they are always so excited to learn how they can make a BIG difference!  We just started our discussion, and we’re already having so much fun!

We began by reading Miss Fox’s Class Goes Green and talked about all the ways we could love our Earth.  Then we obviously made a fun craft to go along with our chit-chat:
I can recycle and reuse.
I use less water.  I love to reuse.
I protect animals.  I take short showers.

One of my sweets also drew me a picture to match:
Hehe 🙂
You might remember that I made an Earth Day anchor last year… it would have been perfect for our lesson!  However, I misplaced it 🙁  I want to redraw it {and put it in a SAFE spot} but for now a sloppy copy will have to do!  Here’s a pic of the original:

Tomorrow, we’re going to read Why Should I Recycle? and make a list of all the things we can recycle.  Today I drew up an easy anchor chart that I will whip out after our discussion:
My littles saw me drawing up the bin {I added the words after they left} and they “ooohed” and “aaahed,” saying, “Mrs. P’s an artist!  She’s an artist!”  I just LOVE little kids!

I’ve also been using pages from Lyndsey’s Earth Day unit… I am especially excited to read the story she wrote, “Don’t Be a Litter Monster!”
You can read more about her pack {HERE}!

And if you made it all the way down here, I have an Earth Day freebie for you!!
It includes a word search, ABC order, and a making words activity.  Grab your free copy of love our earth {free printables} from my TpT shop!

I’d love to hear from you!
What Earth Day activities do you have planned?
