Earth Day is April 22nd – Resources for Your Classroom

Earth Day is a great time to plan fun, educational, and action-oriented activities. Celebrating Earth Day on or around April 22 can be a great way for schools to showcase classroom environmental education, highlight efforts to “green” the school facility, or engage the whole school community in making a difference.
An Earth Day activity can be done in one class period, can take place over the course of a few class periods or a week, or can be a school-wide activity or fair. The best activities offer opportunities to both teach about an issue and make a tangible environmental impact. Even just taking your class outside is a great way to honor the Earth: do math or spelling with chalk out on the blacktop.

Here is a compilation of links to great resources and ideas to bring Earth Day to your students:
