April 22 is Earth Day! I already have a few posts with Earth Day activities, so I want to share those along with some new Montessori-Inspired Earth Day activities published since my roundup post last year.
I loved celebrating Earth Day with my kids when they were little, and I’m so happy to see all the great Earth Day activities around the blogosphere today! Following are some Montessori-inspired Earth Day printables and resources.
Montessori-Inspired Earth Day Printables
Earth Day Cards and Booklet (available inexpensively from Montessori Print Shop)
Montessori-Inspired Earth Day Activities
Earth Day posts, including an Earth Day sensory tub, from Carrots Are Orange
Free Downloads: Earth Day and Make a Snail Garden from Montessori on a Budget
Earth Day Lessons from Just Montessori
Montessori-Inspired Activities for Earth Day Every Day (my post from last year with follow-up activities to Earth Day)
Montessori-Inspired Lorax Activities (and Earth Day Blog Hop). UPDATE: Even though Montessori schools and homeschools have been using push pins for pin punching for years, I think it’s time to change. Please read this sad post and consider an alternative to push pins, such as Montessori Services’ wood handled puncher.
Earth Day in the Montessori Classroom from North American Montessori Center
Celebrate Spring Posts at Mama Nature
Earth Day and Folk Art from Montessori Mom
Other Ideas for Earth Day
Activities don’t have to be specifically designed for Earth Day to be great Earth Day activities.
Montessori-Inspired Arbor Day Activities are great for Earth Day, too.
A study of the earth is wonderful before, during, and after Earth Day. If you sign up for my newsletter (in my right sidebar) you’ll receive a free copy of Karen Tyler’s Montessori geography album for preschoolers through early elementary. You’ll find lots of great activities in the geography album for Earth Day or any day.
For Montessori elementary students, Earth Day could be a great time to introduce or review the First Great Lesson. (The Five Great Lessons of the Elementary Curriculum from Montessori for Everyone)
And of course, outdoor activities, especially in nature, are wonderful for Earth Day or anyday.
Are you planning to celebrate Earth Day?
