Earth Day is right around the corner, so this week we will be incorporating some fun math and literacy activities in anticipation! Foster a love for sustainability with these Earth Day Lesson Plans and Activities for Kindergarten and 1st grade! There's also a free file to download!
Here are a few gems I rounded up for Earth Day.
 
Earth Day Popcorn Treats from Simple Like That.
Earth Day Slime from Little Bins for Little Hands
We can reuse magazines to make this fun craft from I Heart Crafty Things.
 
These are cute little planters for Earth Day!  They are from The Darcie Craft Blog
Mess free Earth Day finger painting?  Yes, please from Still Playing School
How about this fun Earth Day writing?
This is from my friend Kelley over at  Teacher Idea Factory.
This is a free file that I created a few years back.  You can find it HERE.
I will be spending another fun week with my kindergarten friends.  Last week was 10 kinds of awesome, so I am really looking forward to this upcoming week.  This week we will be reading The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.  It always makes me cry.
 
This version is narrated by Shel Silverstein.  I think they will like to hear his voice.  I can turn the pages as he reads.
Have a fantastic week!

    I enjoyed reading this post, especially because Earth Day is coming soon. I am a kindergarten teacher, and I think it is important to teach children about the Earth. Children are the future, and we as educators are responsible for teaching them what they need to know to protect our planet. Next week I will be teaching my children about Earth and I will use many of the ideas that you mentioned, they are amazing! Thank you for your suggestions.
    I will teach my students how to create a sustainable world. It is an outstanding opportunity to focus the children’s attention, creativity and imagination on the environment. This will motivate the students to act persuasively to help solve environmental problems and give more attention to global issues.
    I believe that teaching kids to love the Earth is a gentle guide to exploring the natural world with a sense of discovery and curiosity. This will help the children give extra care to our beloved planet.
    I will give my students a chance to cooperate, participate, and interact to recall what they learned (Ullman, E. 2011).
    During the week, I will be doing different activities that I would like to share with you:
    1. I will ask students to dress up every day with a different t-shirt color:
    – Yellow to present Sun
    – White to present Air
    – Blue to present Water
    – Brown to present soil
    I will take pictures of the students when they are dressed up, and I will hang the pictures in our class to remind children about what they have to do to our Environment.
    2. We will sing “Plant a Little Seed.”
    I will present on the smart board an online story (“How do plants grow?”).
    Each one of the students will make a planting activity (growing plant from seeds). The students will take planting worksheets and they will cut/write the words and paste them next to the right part of the plant.
    Thanks
