Rachel Carson: A Biographical Play *EARTH DAY ACTIVITY

Rachel Carson: A Biographical Play *EARTH DAY ACTIVITY

A Biologist and marine zoologist, Carson’s books shared her love of nature, especially the ocean and its inhabitants. Her book, Silent Spring, sparked concern in how chemical pesticides were harming our environment. Carson helped to start the environmental movement in our country, which led to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. This Reader's Theater Script could be used as a STEM biography any time of year or especially during the time of Earth Day.

Poetry bundle

Poetry bundle

I have bundled together six resources which I think will be useful for purposes of poetry analysis at this time of year. The Lulu poem and the messages resources would be particularly apt to study around Mother's Day and will provoke discussion about gender roles. The resources can be used throughout the year equally well, however.

This foldable allows students to see first hand how ox bow lakes are formed and makes them use key terminology to explain the process.
