We have been enthusiastically celebrating Earth Day for the past week. It started with an earth necklace project, where students painted salt dough circles to look like the earth.
We also wrote about what we can do to help keep the earth healthy. Here are some of our ideas:
The students participated in five Earth Day-themed rotations today. There were math activities, fine motor activities, craft activities, and more!
Students used pattern blocks to make the earth and a recycle logo.
Geoboards with Earth Day inspirations helped students to strengthen fine motor skills while using shapes to make the earth, a leaf, recycle bins, and trash cans.
We completed our multi-day earth necklace project with students adding some beads to their necklace.
Our celebration wrapped up with a book exchange. Each student was invited to bring in a gently used book to add to our exchange. They took turns choosing a new book, to which I added a special Earth Day bookplate with their names! Happy Earth Day!
