To Earth and Beyond!

This week, we celebrated Earth Day on Monday with this fun activity from Colleen over at Totally Terrific in Texas.
First, we began with one of my favorite Earth Day books, Earth Day Hooray!

(It was also a nice way to review our place value knowledge!)

Then,we brainstormed ways we could help our planet and recorded them on a chart.

Students then made the craftivity, making sure to write on there ways to keep the Earth clean.

I think they turned out pretty cute and DEFINITELY show my students' personalities! :)

To finish up our study of Geography, I have the kids do a "Create Your Own Continent" project!

If you'd like the project directions, click {here}.  It's in Word, so feel free to modify it to fit your standards.  It's an activity I've done for several years and they always turn out really cute! :)

This week, we're off to Ancient Egypt, one of my favorite units!  Once I get the pages sorted out, I can't wait to share my Egypt and China activity books with you! :)
