Hi there! I am so excited to be doing a blog hop with some of my #kinderfriends today. We are bringing you lots of ideas and some freebies to help you with Earth Day in your classroom. I am giving away a craftivity you can do with your kindergarten or first grade sweeties.
It started as a simple art activity for our April number writing calendars this year. The kids cut out the earth and glued it to the purple paper. They then painted VERY carefully. You could also have them paint first and let them dry before you cut and glue to the background paper.
I wanted to give you the earth and the little "Everyday is Earth Day" sign which I'm sure could be useful for other things too...
But it needed something else....
So, I added a writing prompt. I use it as a culminating activity for my Earth Day unit. It gives students an opportunity to tell what they learned by writing about new earth friendly habits they are going to try. The kiddos' writing is always so sweet on this topic.
It would go under the art like the calendar above. This is what it looks like all put together. You can see my promise, too. I am really trying on the shorter showers...
You can go grab the pages for this craftivity right here: Earth Day "my promise" FREEBIE
This is a part of my Everyday is Earth Day unit. It's a resource to help you teach about conserving natural resources so that our little learners GET IT! It has loads of activities and writing prompts to teach these important science concepts any time of year. Here is a little preview:
It also has great sorting activities with color photos to help your students learn about natural resources and how to conserve them. My kids learned so much from these!

Happy Earth Day!
