Friday Freebie - Earth Day Activities


Happy Friday! This was a super busy week, and I wish I could say that things will slow down a little, but next week is just as crazy.  This weekend won't bring a lot of time to relax, but I guess that means it's spring - the weather is warm and my schedule is packed!

I have a freebie for you today that will help with your plans for next week.  Earth Day is next Wednesday and this Graph and Write set will keep your class busy all morning.  Take them outside to collect litter, and then the children can sort the litter into different categories and graph what they've found.  I did this with my class last year and their favorite part was getting to wear plastic gloves while they collected and sorted the litter.  It also includes a writing activity which makes a great bulletin board display.



Thanks for taking a minute to check in, make sure to go download the freebie, I'm sure that your students will love it (and it's really eye opening to see how much litter and the different types of litter you will find)!
