Earth Day Online Project

Earth Day Project and Activities 

 

Earth Day 2009 Poster 

 I started my Earth Day celebration with my students before our spring break. We watched this video so my students had some background knowledge of how this celebration was started. I told them we were participating in a very large online project called Earth Day Groceries Project. I went to the grocery store right next door to our school and borrowed a bundle of paper grocery bags (400 bags to the bundle) which will each be decorated with a “save the environment” message and artwork by the students. The decorated bags will be returned to the store before April 22 so that customers can have their groceries bagged in one of them. Not only are my students learning the lessons of reduce, reuse, recycle, but they are helping spread the word throughout our community.

They are also making PowerPoint slides of math word problems that have an environmental theme, writing acrostic poems about Earth Day and litter, playing environmental online games, and finding their carbon footprint. Click on the link above the picture for lots of Earth Days to use with  your students.

    Thanks for writing about this. There’s a heap of great tech information on the internet. You’ve got a lot of that info here on your web site. I’m impressed – I try to keep a couple blogs reasonably live, but it’s a struggle sometimes. You’ve done a great job with this one. How do you do it?

    Very informative article. I’ve found your blog via Bing and I’m really happy about the information you provide in your articles. Btw your sites layout is really messed up on the Chrome browser. Would be great if you could fix that. Anyhow keep up the great work!
