Show a little extra love and care for our planet on Friday, April 22—Earth Day! For more than 40 years, this day has been set aside to encourage and inspire people to help protect the environment. Explore issues of ecology and environmentalism in your class with this collection of resources. Students can learn about the lifespan of products, investigate the role of citizen scientists in helping professional scientists generate climate data, and examine the trade-offs involved in our use of energy.
Looking for even more ideas? Thinkfinity’s Earth Day collection is focused on the environment and its modern-day challenges. The Think Green collection also gets students involved in preserving the environment.
