Happy Earth Day!

Today is Earth day and I thought that I would share with all of you what we did in our preschool class today.  My student teacher, Megan, did an excellent planning for today’s festivities.

First, we read Lois Ehlert’s book, In My World.

This book was perfect for preschoolers because it has simple text and adjectives describe each picture before naming the object.  This book is perfect for developing vocabulary.

Next, students used blue and green tissue paper to decorate the ‘world’.  Here is a picture:

Students used watered down glue to glue tissue paper to represent water and land on their papers.

Here is a link to the clip art that we used for this project:  Earth Clip Art from ABC Teach.

Here is a picture of the finished project:

Next, students completed the recyling counting page.  We used number stamps for these as well.  This page was from The Learning Page.  If you have never heard of the learning page, then I highly recommend signing up for their website.  It is a free resource, but membership is required.

Here are some other great ideas and printables to celebrate Earth Day in your classrooms:

  1. Earth Day Game from DJ Inkers
  2. Earth Day Writing from DJ Inkers
  3. Earth Day Maze from DJ Inkers
  4. Another Cute Recycling Game from DJ Inkers
  5. Another Great Writing Activity from DJ Inkers
  6. Step By Step Childcare’s Earth Day Theme

Feel free to share your ideas for Earth Day in the comment section.  I’d love to hear what you are doing in your classrooms 🙂
