Recycling Earth Day Craft :: Environmental Craft :: Earth Day Activities

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle…even Replenish and Restore! A creative way to teach environmental education for Earth Day. Decorate your classroom and teach your kiddos about the Three R’s – Reduce, Reuse, Recycle - and the additional R’s – Replenish and Restore. Whether hanging from the ceiling or sitting on the shelf, your kiddos will love creating and putting on their own personal touches on these unique Earth Day Globes. Paper lanterns are great for developing fine motor skills such as: folding, coloring, painting, gluing, cutting, listening and following directions. Embedded within this Earth Day project there are several activities to extend your students learning about the Earth. These units are designed in a Mix and Match format. You are able to pick the pieces that you want, depending on the needs and the abilities of your students. There are so many different possibilities and various cutting templates. There are so many ways to create these World lanterns using glitter, paper layering, leaves, shredded paper, tissue paper or garbage collected from around the playground. This unit can be approached in several ways. Either as a quick Earth Day project that will take about 90 minutes to complete. Or as long, in-depth project that will take upwards of a week to complete. In my classroom, creating the basic lantern will take my kiddos about 90 minutes (coloring and assembly). Adding on each Big R arrow will take me an additional 45 to 60 minute block of time. I like to spend time reading, brainstorming, writing and drawing with my students about each of the Big R’s. I use this Earth Day lantern project as the center piece for my Environmental Education. Included: • Printed World lantern templates • Numerous Earth Day trim slogans • Big R arrows in various styles ….check out the preview to see everything included! ***************************************************************************** Keywords: :: Earth Day :: Three R’s :: Reduce :: Reuse :: Recycle :: Restore :: Replenish :: Earth Day Craft :: Fine Motor Crafts :: April 22 :: Crafts for Kids :: Earth Day Activity :: Recycling Activities :: Recycling Crafts :: Paper Lantern :: Ms Lil :: Environmental Education :: World Maps :: Globes :: Montessori :: Earth Day Art. ::

Lorax Craft :: Lorax Activity :: Earth Day Craft

I am the Lorax! I speak for the trees! The Lorax is the superhero of Earth Day. This Lorax activity is the perfect way to decorate your classroom and teach your kiddos about Earth Day. Whether hanging from the ceiling or sitting on the shelf, your kiddos will love creating and putting on their own personal touches on these cuties. Paper lanterns are great for developing fine motor skills such as: folding, coloring, painting, gluing, cutting, listening and following directions. Even my smallest kiddos can cut out the Lorax pieces. Embedded within this Lorax project are several activities for your kiddos…coloring, printing skills or writing. These units are designed in a Mix and Match format. You are able to pick the pieces that you want, depending on the needs and the abilities of your students. There are so many different possibilities and various cutting templates. Each Lorax lantern creation is designed with printed templates. As an option, before we start the lantern creation phase, I have my older kiddos research and write facts they have found about key environmental issues on the back of the lantern, on the arms and the legs. With my Kindies, we will write key words, draw pictures or write simple sentences. On the “body” of the Lorax the kids can copy the “Unless, someone like you”…phrase or design their own. There are so many ways to create the Lorax lanterns using glitter, paper layering, leaves, shredded paper, tissue paper... Make sure to add the Lorax legs and arms…too cute! In my classroom, creating the basic lantern will take my kiddos about 90 minutes (coloring & assembly) . Depending on if I am doing additional extensions or research, the lanterns will take me longer. I break up the creation process into small chunks, working on one piece at a time to ensure that my kids do the best job that they can. I make sure to always model each step of the lantern. Included: • Printed lantern templates • Glue-on Lorax Face parts • Lorax legs, arms and embellishments….check out the preview to see everything included ***************************************************************************** Keywords: :: Lorax :: The Lorax :: Earth Day :: Dr. Seuss :: Lorax Craft :: Lorax Activity :: Earth Day Craft :: Earth Day Activity :: Fine Motor Crafts :: April 22 :: Crafts for Kids :: Lorax Writing :: Truffula Trees :: Lorax Earth Day Craft :: Paper Lantern :: Ms Lil ::

Animal Cruelty Research Article (Source for Argumentative/Persuasive Essay) Graphic Content*

Animal Cruelty Research Article (Source for Argumentative/Persuasive Essay) Graphic Content*

Students need LEGITIMATE AUTHENTIC SOURCES to support their thesis in essays and research reports. Especially for argumentative and persuasive essays that focus on emotional and intellectual appeal. Many topics include issues such as "animal cruelty" and "climate change". This is an original article written by a blogger in an Animal Cruelty Magazine My-Pet-Story.com that I own the copyrights to. Critical literacy along with essay writing involves asking questions and challenging the status quo, and leads students to look at issues of power and justice in society. Researching and analyzing secondary sources empowers students by enabling them to formulate strong arguments and speak out about issues that strongly affect them. To develop their media literacy skills, students should have opportunities to view, analyse, and discuss a wide variety of media texts and relate them to their own experience. Teachers should make students aware that images, print materials, music, or video clips used in connection with tasks and assignments may be subject to copyright, and the appropriate releases should be obtained prior to use. This applies to items downloaded from the Internet as well and sources should be cited at all times.
