Earth Day Interactive Notebook

Earth Day is just around the corner. It can be challenging to talk to students about the environment in a way that doesn’t discourage them. The lessons I created for this interactive notebook are designed with a variety of activities that help students explore key ideas surrounding how they can help the environment not just on a personal level, but as part of a community.

It includes:

  • A KWL Chart for students to track their learning and questions
  • Two reading passages and fold over responses:
    • Schoolyard Clean-Up: This fictional passage emphasizes the importance of community for helping the environment.
    • Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!: non-fiction reading passage discussing¬†the 3 R’s for reducing waste.
  • ‘I Can…’ Foldable Note
  • Reduce Reuse Recycle Foldable Note
  • ‘The Earth Is Everyone’s Home & Everyone’s Responsibility’: foldable note or bullitain board display exploring where positive environmental changes can be made.
  • Teaching guides for each activity and visual foldable instructions.
