Probably the most effective thing we can do to educate our children about the earth is get outdoors with them. Experience the beauty of it together through our senses. Not just talk about, but model the responsibility of taking care of our earth, doing our part to improve the health of our ecosystem, and the ripple effect our actions have on our planet. Aside from outdoor activities, we can also engage our little ones in fun ways while indoors. These Earth Day cut and paste activity pages are engaging worksheets for your child to do while you are: learning more together, becoming inspired, and brainstorming your own ways to make an impact in environmental change.
This free set of Earth Day printables includes easy cut and paste puzzles and matching activities. We’ve also included a fun Earth Day memory game that highlights plant life and recycling. These activities segue into conversations that will hopefully help direct your child’s ideas into action steps. Some important Earth Day topics you can include in your discussions:
- Building a healthy planet
- Climate change
- Community cleanup
- Ending plastic pollution
- Green power
- Nature restoration
- Protecting the environment
- Simple acts of green
- Sustainable fashion
There are worlds of topics and lists upon lists of actions to take together! We’d love to hear what you are doing with your child or student(s) to support environmental literacy and invest in our planet. Please share with us in the comments below
