Thank You: Earth Day is Every Day (re-post)

I want to take a moment to say a big thank you to all of you who have joined me in my commitment to the earth by purchasing a climate change related product.  As you know, I am donating 50% of all proceeds of my climate change related products to Green Ninja (they are about education and the environment!  Check out their videos for your classroom on YouTube).  I hope to get to at least $50 by the end of the month.  Please join me in this quest and find a fun activity for your students (NOTE: new fun 45 minute engineering activity just added - see list below).

The projects/activities in my products around Earth Day include the following:


  • Climate Change Awards: students take on the role of climate scientists to persuade others of the importance of one issue of their choice related to global warming.  Teacher's guide and all student handouts included.  No Prep!
  • Global Warming by the Numbers: students investigate the statistics related to global warming.  They present their findings in a persuasive format such as in the poster above...lots of ideas for extensions and cross-curricular connections.
  • Earth Day: Discovering and Inspiring Artists who recycle and reuse: students discover the creative work of artists who use everything from toys to hubcaps to create dynamic artwork.  Then, students stretch their creative minds in seeing the beauty in what others might call junk.  Earth Day art show...what do you think?
  • Who am I? Climate change conference.  Students each select a climate scientist, environmental advocate or climate change denier to role play at the Earth Day conference.  Students gain research and presentation skills while learning about climate change and experiencing the walk in another person's shoes.
  • Can't choose? 3-in-1 Bundle of Climate change awards, global warming by the numbers, and Who am I? Climate change conference available at over 20% savings.
Alright, alright...big plug is over.  Whether you choose one of these products, show a Green Ninja or other climate change related video, or come up with your own project, I hope you will take a moment to think of the Earth with your students, even if it is just for a day.  After all, what we do today will effect the world our students grow up into.
