5 earth day activities that you can use at home or at school. These easy to do challenges cover math, literacy, STEM and art.


To celebrate Earth Day during distance learning, I have put together a list of activities that I have done in previous years. I have given instructions and ideas on how to adapt them for families:

Earth Day Loose Parts

Engage students with their Earth Day learning with this hands-on loose parts center for kindergarten.

Challenge students to find items around their home to make their own Earth picture. They can used recycle materials, objects from nature, paper, etc.

Earth Day Class Book

Earth Day class book and writing prompt freebie for kindergarten literacy center. Use this for writer's workshop during your earth day celebrations with this free download.

You can download the free writing prompt, and post it for families to use. They can write their answer on a piece of recycled paper, record their answer on video, type their answer, etc.

Shape Flower

Use scrap paper to cut shapes out and make a flower with them. Students can use construction paper, flyers, newspapers, etc.

Seed Bombs

Make seed bombs as an Earth Day or spring activity. Use recycled paper to make seed balls with your students to plant.

If you are looking to challenge families with a STEM activity, you can have them try to make seed bombs. You can find easy instructions on how to make them here. My students loved making these last year!

Read a Book

Have students read a book about Earth Day (I made a collection on Epic! books for you to check out), and reflect on how they can take care of the Earth. Challenge them to do one thing that will help the Earth (recycle, pick up litter, plant flowers, etc.)
