The Earth Day Opportunity

Teachers across the country have a unique opportunity to engage their students in science this Earth Day.
 

Every April, science takes center stage at school with Earth Day activities, often dubbed Earth Week depending on your district. The days leading up to Earth Day offer teachers a great opportunity to heighten student interest in the environment and science as a whole.

Engaging students in science requires a variety of techniques. A simple lecture will not suffice. Instead, use a range of Earth Day activities and projects in the field, in the classroom, and online to make environmental concepts come alive.

In addition to the resources offered on this page, you can find critical resources to help across the web:

If you have additional Earth Day resources for teachers, please contact us. We will review and share appropriate resources.
