In honor of Earth Day’s 51st birthday, we put together a list of 51 environmental activities kids can do to celebrate Earth Day. Each activity includes links to activity descriptions. Share the list with your students and ask which ones they would like to do.
The list, which links to further information on subjects throughout is broken down into six different areas: Learn about solutions to climate change; learn about ways to reduce waste; learn about plants; learn about waterways, parks and conservation; learn about and protect birds, bees and other wildlife; and create a healthier home and community.
Activities range from making your own solar oven from a pizza box to creating a bird feeder out of an apple, peanut butter and birdseed. Educational opportunities vary from calculating your family’s carbon footprint to making your garden or neighborhood pollinator friendly.
