Today marks the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day!
We celebrate Earth Day in order to raising awareness about the importance of protecting our planet and taking action. However in a time when the actions we should be taking entail staying at home, you may be wondering how you can celebrate and educate about our planet.
For starters, if you have little ones, you might want to show them the video below!
The video gives a simple and fun explanation of how Earth Day came to be and the importance of being aware of our effects on the planet. That being said you may also want to do some activities to reinforce the ideas they'll learn from the video. If that's the case, click here. The link will bring you to a page of teacher approved activities that are fun, simple, and informative.
