Earth Day Education
Since its inception on April 22, 1970, Earth Day has been an annual event for people around the world to celebrate our planet and renew our commitment to maintaining a safer, healthier and cleaner world for all of us. Earth Day provides the perfect backdrop to discuss important environmental issues with our students and help them to adopt earth-friendly habits early on in life.
The goals of this month’s lesson are to spark creative ideas in your students for reusing everyday products, spur their interest in using recycled products and construct new products of their own. We are pleased to provide you with a lesson plan that is tailored toward the age of your students.
