Earth Day virtual field trip is a great experience for all! So, what’s the big deal about Earth Day, and why is it important for us to learn more? Earth Day is a day to celebrate our planet and learn how to better take care of, appreciate, and preserve its natural resources. It’s also a great opportunity to raise awareness and learn about climate change, recycling, and preserving our natural resources.

I love when I have the opportunity to integrate activities into two subject areas. For example, interactive Earth Day activities fall into two subject areas - writing and science. Virtual Field Trip: Earth Day is just one of the many fun times you can have with students on April 22.
Here are a few more interactive Earth Day activities. Read alouds, directed drawings, Pick Up Litter Day, etc. I have included my top suggestions of read alouds that I highly recommend. With each read aloud, students can write a reflection or summary of their reading. Students can meet in small groups and compare notes as well as discuss takeaways from the read alouds. If you are a math and science teacher like me, speak with your team teacher or an ELA teacher to find out the best way to implement reading and writing into Earth Day. That way students are learning and implementing strategies in two subject areas. The possibilities are endless here!
Directed drawings are so much fun! My students enjoy drawing and love learning how to draw new, fun things. If you haven’t discovered directed drawings yet, you have got to check them out. YouTube offers so many great artists that are child friendly and perfect for teachers to implement in their classrooms. The artists go slow and you can pause to allow students to catch up when needed or have students work independently. I cannot recommend direct drawings enough! Here are my top suggestions for directed drawings that are perfect for Earth Day.
You can incorporate writing activities, directed drawings, or read alouds along with this Virtual Field Trip: Earth Day and have fun, meaningful activities for the day. I wanted to keep activities simple, yet meaningful, and totally easy for teachers. I love sharing my ideas with you!
So whether you are looking to tie Earth Day activities in with science standards or are just looking to celebrate Earth Day, everything you need can be found right here. The best part is all the work has been done for you. All you have to do is post links in Google Classroom or use the PowerPoint presentation.
Virtual Field Trips are so much fun for students! Whether you are looking for fun Friday activities or an activity that correlates with standards, virtual field trips is the way to go.
