Earth Day

EARTH DAY is right around the corner! Ok, I hate wasting paper on student worksheets! I try to include activities where we can reuse materials while focusing on hands-on activities. I recently just wrote a shared reading book that I plan on incorporating into my literacy block and I included a student contract to help my kiddos commit to making three changes that will positively impact the earth. I am trying to use as little paper as I can (which is really hard to do). I usually do a trash art project but this year I want to step it up a bit and trying to think outside the box on other crafts or projects we can do this year! As you can see, I have just started to plan and I am excited to use this cool website I just stumbled upon called Planet Pals ( I am not affiliated by any means with this website, just found it and thought I would post on my own blog. I hope it helps me figure out what recycled projects my first graders can do to get them thinking about energy use, trash/recycling and how we can make the world a better place for tomorrow!! Happy Trails!
