Happy Earth Day Everyone!

I wanted to share just some of the activities that we have been up to this last week all leading up to Earth Day:

Dandelion Art Project (For Spring as well as Earth Day)


On Earth Day I will … (Writing Prompt for our daughter)


Earth Day Mini Unit (free printable) including this sorting activity

The kids and I had a blast this past week also doing a Lorax themed unit for Earth Day (which can be found HERE). Here are some pictures of one of the art projects/writing prompts that we did:

Place a white paper circle in a large adult sized shoe box with 3 marbles and several dots of green and blue paint.


Shake away!


The end result is a beautiful custom made Earth.
