Original post from The Green Team newsletter –
This week’s featured topic is Earth Day. Though celebrations for Earth Day can’t happen in person within school communities, there are still many activities to participate in virtually. Here are some activities and lesson plans that THE GREEN TEAM has created or collected around Earth Day:
- The 50th anniversary of Earth Day will be celebrated with the first Digital Earth Day. The Earth Day Network has planned 24 hours of actions you can take at home and on social media to promote environmental sustainability.
- Green Olympics Virtual Home Edition: Project Green Schools encourages students to compete in environmental games and challenges held throughout the spring to make an impact with their environmental knowledge and creativity.
- THE GREEN TEAM Climate Change Activities: This lesson plan and scorecard, which are aligned with Massachusetts curriculum standards, are teaching tools to empower students to combat climate change by helping students discover, track, and measure actions they can take to reduce greenhouse gas pollution.
