An Earth Day Pledge (and a FREEBIE)

Earth Day is one of my favorite times of year. From reading the Lorax, to teaching all about recycling, Earth Day is such a great opportunity to teach our little learners how to become global citizens. After all, the future of our planet is in their hands.

Make a Pledge

My favorite way to celebrate Earth Day is to have my students make an Earth Day pledge. Here are the 3 easy steps:
Step 1: I pre-make a poster with the Earth in the middle and I write our pledge “With these hands, We pledge to take care of our Earth”.
Step 2: As a class, we generate different ways to help take care of our Earth, and I add those to the poster.
Step 3: Students make their “pledge” by placing a paint covered hand on the poster and I write their names underneath.

Handprint Tip

When doing handprints, it is WAY easier to have the student hold out their hand and use a paintbrush to put the paint on their hand rather than having them dip their hands into paint!
