Fun Activities for Earth Day! Plan an Assembly!

Hey Teachers.
Auntie Litter wants to help you plan an assembly with your class to celebrate Earth Day in April.

Spread the Word
Ask the local grocery store if they will donate their large paper sacks for your students to decorate. Have the students colorfully decorate them with positive messages or tips on how to save our environment. (Make sure they don’t use materials that would damage a customer’s clothing). Return them to the store in time for Earth Day. Ask the manager to use these on Earth Day for their customers’ purchases.

Sidewalk Chalk Art

Sidewalk art is fun and it washes away when it rains. Ask the principal for permission to let students draw positive messages on the sidewalks outside of school for parents and students to read.

Trash Sculptures

Have a contest or an art show.
Ask the students to create something from reusable or recyclable materials (i.e. milk jugs, paper towel rolls, cereal box, bottle tops, etc). You can select a theme or let them choose what they want to make.
