Earth Day

Celebrate Earth Day with a series of activities for your young learners that will inspire and instruct. This 40 page packet provides flexibility to fit your schedule as you may choose to space out the activities over a five-day unit, or complete them in a single-day celebration. Included in this mini-theme are: literature suggestions, discussion topics, activity sheets, art project, writing extensions, reading comprehension, a pledge certificate and more. As is customary of ABC Schoolhouse products, the art is professionally created and original. We do not use clip-art and we provide everything you need to complete the suggested activities. You may also combine the pages to create an Earth Day book for each student or use the pages as stand alone activities. Whichever you may choose, your students are sure to learn why Earth Day is important and enjoy the instructional activities included in the e-book.

Origin of Earth Day

In the 1960s, there were many concerns about the awareness regarding the environment among Americans. During this period, U.S senator and environmentalist, Gaylord Nelson, tried to galvanize the conservation movement through the appropriate creation of a national celebration.

Nelson made a lot of efforts in the Congress to pass a legislation which protected the popular Appalachian Trail. He also tried to pass a legislation to ban the use of DDT. In order to organize the first Earth Day, Nelson sought some help from Denis Hayes, who was a graduate at Harvard University.

The first Earth Day was celebrated on 22nd April, 1970. It was specifically designed as an environmental awareness program. Its aim was to educate participants about the importance of conserving the environment. In 1990, Denis Hayes organized a global Earth Day. It was observed in more than 140 countries by 200 million people.
