Hi Friends! I’m just quickly stopping by to share the updates I’ve made to my Earth Day packet!
To begin our unit, I’m going to place the “true” poster on one side of the classroom and the “false” poster on the other side of the classroom.
Then, on the document camera, I’m going to display these “Shocking Facts Photographs” for all to see. I’m going to read each sentence aloud and students are going to have to determine if they think the statement is true or false by moving to one side of the classroom. The nice thing about this activity is that you have the choice of printing the pictures or displaying them on your computer.
I think these posters and facts will help start some great discussions!
Then, we’ll be watching this great BrainPop on The 3 R’s!
And listen to Jack Johnson sing about reducing, reusing, and recycling!
We’ll also be reading this original story all about the litter monster! The story teaches students about the importance of Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle.
After reading the story, we’re going to complete this organizer and brainstorm ways on how to NOT be a litter monster AND we’re going to write a letter to him explaining the importance of caring for the Earth! We’re also going to be making our own litter monsters out of reusable materials. My kids last year LOVED creating their own litter monsters!
We’re also going to read these mini-books about The Three R’s. I know my kiddos will LOVE illustrating the pictures of this book. Their illustrations will act as a great assessment tool too.
As we read stories about the Earth, we’ll be referring to these vocabulary cards too. The Earth Day Words organizer will help them develop a better understanding of what each of these words mean.
We’ll be using some of these other organizers and activities as well!
You can grab all of these activities at my shop! Enjoy!!!
