I just received my copy of The Earth Book by Todd Parr from Barnes and Noble. I love it and I highly recommend it for a Earth Day activity. I just love T. Parr's illustrations.
For the last two years my class has teamed up with their eighth grade buddies and we did a clean up of the front of our school garden area. Lots of fun and cooperation.....
Last year and again this year I will have the kids make a necklace of the world out of shrinking plastic material. They enjoyed watching the world shrink in the toaster oven.
