1-2-3 Come Make An Earth Day Craftivity With Me!
Are you looking for a quick, easy and fun writing prompt for Earth Day? Then I think you'll enjoy this "I can make a difference!" craftivity.
Depending on the age of your students, there are several ways they can put together "The 3 R's" Earth Day dangler.
Run off my patterns. Students add some color, trim and mount the "I can make a difference" square, on construction paper. They cut out the letter R, punch a hole at the top and attach it to the bottom of the square.
Older students can write how they plan to make a difference on the back of the eye square.
If you want little ones to make a ceiling dangler as well, run off double copies, so that they can glue them back-to-back.
Otherwise, simply display them as a border against a wall.
I've also included a heart-shaped earth template you could glue to the back of their work.
Because I glued a school picture behind the hole in the letter R, I glued the heart over the back of it to finish things off.
The packet also includes two certificates of praise. One for a boy to color, and one for a girl. These act as a pledge or promise to do their part too.
I truly believe that breaking stuff down for young children, by showing them simple things they can do to help the earth, empowers them. Just making youngsters aware of the necessity for conservation is important.

Well that's it for today. I know that April showers bring May flowers, but rainy days sort of zap my energy and give me a sleepy feeling. My long "to do" list might have to wait. Wishing you a peaceful day filled with relaxing moments.
