Earth Day Everyday!

Hi, friends!  Shannon here from Bryant's Brain Train.  If your April is like mine, there are tons of things going on at school during this busy spring season...state testing, field trips, Easter, field day, spring break, etc.  

April is also the perfect time to sprinkle in a bit of special Science instruction--April 22nd is Earth Day, and April 28th is Arbor Day.  What a great time to teach the 3 R's--REDUCE, REUSE, and RECYCLE!  I thought I would share a few ideas and freebies to try, based upon these upcoming days.
I just love this Earth Day song, full of great ideas for kids to try!  Why not make a chart and brainstorm ideas that your class can put into practice in the weeks ahead?!

Like these adorable cookies...
 Or this milk jug watering can...
Or even this simple bird feeder made from Cheerios and chenille stems.

Lastly, how about a couple of Earth Day FREEBIES?  Just click the images below...
I hope your April is simply awesome!  Happy Spring, and Happy, Hoppy Easter!
