Earth Day Family Project

Today I am bringing you a fun Family Project for Earth Day. Each year, my grade level gets together to plan this fun event and to get families involved in celebrating Earth Day.

Each kindergarten teacher selects a "theme" for their class' projects; such as robots, ships, transportation, rocket ships, castles or animals. My favorite theme to do is animals.

We send the following letter home to inform our students' parents of the project. Click on the picture to get your copy.


As part of this project, students are expected to create a How-To Book, so that any student could recreate their masterpieces! Attached to the parent letter we use this wonderful FREEBIE from Kristin Kring {You can find it HERE.}.

As an extra activity at school, I had my students separate their animals by the habitats they live in and then create a habitat display for their animals as a group project.

Below are some examples of my students projects.




The last day of school before Earth Day, we have our entire Kindergarten team tour each classroom to see all of the wonderful Recycling, Reusing and Reducing that took place! It is one of my favorite projects each year!
