How To Use Earth Day Printables
There are so many different ways you can use these printables. You may use them a little differently whether you’re using them with young children, kindergarten students, or even older students!
Start by downloading the Earth Day printable pack PDF at the bottom of this post. Once you’ve printed out the activities, grab your kids, some crayons, colored pencils or markers, and a few pencils, and hand out the pages.
Explain the Earth Day activity directions to the kiddos and watch their imaginations explore as they take on these fun activities.
Take the simple aspects of each page for the younger kids – find different letters on the page, work on sounding out blends for beginner readers, and everyone can have fun coloring the fun coloring page.
Older kids will enjoy creating their own comic strips and drawing activities they can do to help take care of our Earth!
Or even getting lost in the word search. Even I enjoy getting lost in a little word search every once in a while.
There’s an activity for everyone of all ages to learn a little something about Earth Day with these free printables.
