Earth day will be here before you know it! We love this holiday, as it reminds us to just stop our busy routines and appreciate the beautiful world around us. While the quarantine situation isn't ideal, it's actually the perfect time to realize how much we take everything for granted. Maybe it's the daily drive through the mountains or the salty air coursing through your hair during your morning run on the beach. The world around us is so beautiful, and it's clear through posts on Facebook and Instagram that we miss being able to freely enjoy it. However, have you stopped to think how we can better protect it? We love teaching our students these concepts, so we wanted to share some easy activities to do at home or over the computer!
Earth Day Freebie
You're probably wondering why our title asks about toilet paper rolls, yet we haven't even mentioned anything about them. Well this is why ~ we figured since everyone is hoarding TP then they must be going through TP like crazy! Rather than recycle them, might as well reuse them. A freebie in our TPT store shares three activities to do at home: 1) make your own binoculars, 2) planting seeds, 3) spotting objects and/or animals you see outside, that you also see in the pictured scene (to make it more challenging, we added the attribute wheel that the child can use to describe the object/animal they spot). Click here to check it out!
These awesome no-prep worksheets targets:
- Earth day vocabulary
- comparing and contrasting-
- opposites- phonological awareness skills
- /k, g, t, d/ in all position of words
