The month of April is dedicated to taking care of our planet. Earth Day is a time where we celebrate Earth and all the beautiful things it offers. But we also have to take care of our home so it can be around for a long time! I’m sharing my favorite book and Earth Day activity that is perfect for this time of year!
Start With a Book
You know it. I always start a lesson with a good book. It’s a great way to integrate multiple subjects into one. It saves time and it shows your learners how they can all work together to accomplish a goal. This particular book goes great with this week’s free resource. 10 Things I Can Do to Help My World lists just that. It illustrates and explains ten things we can do to help our world.
There are so many simple things our children can do (along with parents) that can help our world. From walking to school rather than driving to recycling our water bottle when we are done.
And there are so many other great books that you can use. Here are some more of my favorites.
These books, along with so many other great ones will go well with my free resource.
A Writing Activity
Many of you have a child that is learning to write stories. This is a perfect activity for little ones that aren’t quite ready to write multiple sentences describing ways they can help our world.
I’ve provided enough space where your child can draw and illustrate their chosen way to help our world. And if they are ready, they can add a sentence or two describing their picture!
