Many of us are the adults that model good citizenship to our students in the hope that they will then do the "right thing" as adults when they are in charge of the environment. This, along with oh, so many other jobs we have, seems to be a little "over the top", but, let's face it....the future of our planet depends on it!
Also, when you can integrate an appreciation of our earth with social studies and science through technology and/or online collaborative projects, it becomes an excellent learning experience for your students.
So, with Earth Day around the corner, I wanted to share with you what Teachers First, the newsletter, made available - a complete list of Earth Day Ideas, Earth Day: TeachersFirst Editor's Choices. It is full of great ideas, projects, and collaborations that you can use as resources for this year's Earth Day lessons or future Social Studies and Science Lessons. Check it out!
