Happy Earth Day!
April 22nd is Earth Day. I've always felt that environmental stewardship and awareness is really important to teach to young children. These lessons about the environment will help shape the adults they will become.
The students in class always walk away with a good understanding that their choices matter and will have an impact on their world.
Earth Day Stations
1) NASA's Earth as Art App
I love this iPad app. Students get to explore different satellite images of the world like mountains, desserts, and rivers. These satellite images are amazingly colorful and really really cool.
This app is totally free and available on the iTunes store.
2) Dot Stamper Globes
Students use the green and blue dot stampers to make the land and water on the globe. The ink blends together to make a really cool globe. You can also use markers and a spritz of water. Super easy!
3) Earth Day Writing
Found in a pervious post, my Earth Day writing activity is an easy station to put in the rotation. Students draw a picture of the Earth and write about what they would do to take care of it.
