FIVE STARS – Earth Day Lesson Ideas   Leave a comment

Earth Day is around the corner and hopefully every class can spend 15 minutes next week just covering the concept….

…or, hopefully a full blown lesson !

In my classes I found that students are interested in doing something about the environment because they see the results …. they directly impact something in a positive way and that’s a mega boost no matter what the scio-economic class floor is.

Courtesy of the Wilderness Organization ….. here are some cool activity ideas – RELEVANT to REAL LIFE –  and the materials to get ’em done with class.
