These are my favorite books about earth day. Thank You Earth is full of photographs with poetic text to accompany each. The Earth and I, I love Asch's art and the emotional story of Earth being a friend. I love the earth is a whimsical journey of how to help the earth, but great for short attention spans.
The Earth Day Craft is a no prep extension of any of these books:
- Color the Earth and Decorations that are going to be used.
- Cut out the Earth and Decorations that are going to be used.
- Glue the Earth and Decorations onto a piece of paper.
- Use Chalk for stars.
Included in the Pack:
-Large B/W Earth with Recycle Symbol
-Earth helper Decorations
-Extra Earth Decorations
-I Spy Page
-Good/bad for Earth?
-Critical thinking, what doesn't belong? This is open ended, student only needs to have a reason for her group base. For example, she can choose by shape; odd one out is the square/heart. OR she can choose by color; odd one out is the black and white. OR choose by symbol; odd one out is earth.
