Earth Day Activities

Hello Everyone!

The 50th Earth Day is this Wednesday April 22nd and now more than ever it is important to recognize and educate our children about global conservation. One way we can participate is to clean up a local park or play area. Here is a list of links to help incorporate natural science education, climate change and environmental awareness with projects, lesson plans and virtual field trips.

By the way, they say Earth Day is not a day it is a movement: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FRzGgJk8X8M
