Learn about how solar energy begins and is used by all living things. Areas of the animated information can be clicked to find even more details about the formation of fossil fuels, photovoltaic cells, and differences between seasons. A text only version of the site can be accessed. A glossary provides easily understood definitions of many of the terms. Activities for teachers to use include: "Solar Energy Activity," "Photovoltaic Energy Activity," "Solar Thermal Energy Activity," and "Chemical Energy Activity." These are available as an Adobe PDF download. Additional resources are provides as weblinks that can provide additional information. This site requires Flash and Adobe Acrobat. You can get both from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): chemicals (44), earth (224), earth day (105), energy (207), fossil fuels (18), solar energy (39)

In the Classroom

Use this animated site for students to gain background information about Solar Energy. Students can then work in groups to investigate various concepts from the animation. Student groups can also investigate renewable vs. nonrenewable energy sources following this introduction. Students can create posters using conventional materials or many of the multimedia applications for a digital version. Students can create a pamphlet, draft a letter, or editorial for change in energy policies, etc. With younger grades, share the website on an interactive whiteboard or projector.

Find information about building a sustainable environment for the future of your community. Though this site is geared for the east bay area in California, many of the tips and fact sheets are helpful in any area of the world. Get articles and fact sheets (PDF) about plastics, climate change, recipes for healty living, seed saving, and more. Type Lesson Plans in the Search box to find 16 lesson plans on a variety of topics from How to Grow a School Garden, to Global Oneness Project. For those who have used the Terrain lesson plans the site says they will be archived and available soon. Until then, type Terrain into the search, the second entry will take you to their blog about terrain.

Notes: Links on the site ask for donations to the organization and suggest places to volunteer. A store link is also included. This site is best suited for teachers, as it contains lesson plans. Links to articles can be provided directly from your class web page.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): consumers (18), earth (224), earth day (105), ecology (138), molecules (45)

In the Classroom

Use the information on the site to enhance lessons on sustainable topics. The background information is extensive and easy to follow. Form students into small groups, based on their interest, for learning about one of the sustainable concepts. Students can create a multimedia presentation of their concept in order to improve awareness for others in the community. Great tools for creating a multimedia project are Venngage, an infographic tool, reviewed here, Padlet, a poster tool, reviewed here, or Gravit, that creates a flyer, post card, or infographic, reviewed here. Use these in conjunction with Earth Day to create local change.

Use this site to understand the ozone and how it affects our air quality and life here on Earth. Satellite imagery of ozone holes includes an updated daily picture and comparison over the last decades. NASA facts listed on the side include an opportunity to learn more about the information presented, watch satellite images from the last 7 days, view animations, compare year-to-date, and look at the annual records since 1979 using "Ozone Hole Watch." Information about the ozone and how it is measured is explained in detail here. "Explore the ozone with NASA" by viewing a short video that outlines the ozone and discusses new research and climate change. Use the "Resources for News Media" to view the Multimedia gallery for pictures of the largest ozone hole on record, the Arctic vortex, and Earth's Atmospheric Layers. Information about ozone depleting chemicals and ozone chemistry is also found here. View video of the ozone missions from NASA. "Ozone Hole 101" provides basic content about the ozone that is easy to understand for students. Read interesting information such as "Ozone levels drop when hurricanes are strengthening" and "Ozone hole is a double record breaker." This site requires Quicktime and animations require Flash. You can get both from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): earth (224), earth day (105), environment (325), ozone (10)

In the Classroom

Students can use the resources in "Ozone Hole Watch" to determine the trends in the ozone either daily or over the years. Further research involving political, consumer, and environmental trends can bring insights into effects on the ozone layer. Using the wealth of material on the site, students can use the information to create a "Handbook of the Earth" (as an example) to understand how the ozone affects us in our current and future lives. Students can also work in groups and be assigned portions of the content to study. They can then present their findings to the rest of the class (using a multi-media presentation). Students can use this information in conjunction with environmental or Earth Day activities in or out of class.

Think Green when you print in your classroom! Save paper and trees with GreenPrint, which analyzes each print job for wasteful pages of banner ads, single lines of text and URL footnotes. Yes, it requires installing software(which you may have to ask others to do for you), but this free printer software allows you to quickly add and remove pages from the print job, saving energy, paper, ink, money, and ultimately trees. GreenPrint also provides EverGreen, a free font designed to allow more words to fit on a printed page, reducing paper use by 15-20% with no loss of readability.

tag(s): earth (224), earth day (105), ecology (138), environment (325)

In the Classroom

Share this idea with your principal for a school-wide ecology movement that will also save school funds. As a special project, be sure to have students track paper use before and after as a whole-school applied science project and keep a display on the lobby bulletin board to share the number of tress "saved"!

GreenPrint is for non-commercial use and requires an internet connection. It installs on Windows 2000/XP/Vista. Check the Download page for computer system requirements. Read the Overview page for use instructions. Send the link to your Technology Department for permission to install the software and font.

Share this link on your class/school website or newsletter (if applicable). Many families are looking for ways to be more "green."

This earth-friendly web activity challenges students to make wise choices in recycling plastics, donating old materials, reusing bags, and other "green" choices. "Wasted" is a simple activity that includes mice that eat up materials based on the students' choices. A lot of educational information is included within the activities. The activity presents a bedroom with items dropping in from the ceiling. Students must settle on a decision about each item fairly quickly, because the items continuously fall from the sky. Vocabulary is British. This site requires FLASH. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page..

tag(s): earth (224), earth day (105), environment (325), plastics (8)

In the Classroom

This website would be a great addition to your Earth Day lessons. Share it on a classroom computer cluster or as a center option to see how "green" your students can be. The class will truly enjoy this educational tool. Make it more meaningful by starting a recycling effort in your classroom or school, as well.

This is an environmental site and should NOT be confused with catalogchoice.COM, a consumer site FULL of advertising. Catalog Choice(.org) provides free membership to "opt out" of catalogs. Their self-described mission is "a free service that allows you to decide what gets in your mailbox. Use it to reduce your mailbox clutter, while helping save natural resources." If you teach consumer skills, basic economics, or environmental issues, this site is a real world place to visit with your students as part of your class discussions on marketing, advertising, and environmental issues caused by junk mail.

tag(s): advertising (33), earth (224), earth day (105), environment (325)

In the Classroom

If you teach about advertising techniques or information literacy, project both the .org and the .com sites on a screen or whiteboard so students can use a critical eye to see what the .com site is trying to do! Invite your science class to share the .ORG site at home and start an "uncatalog" drive to save some trees. Keep a running total of the number of catalogs your class has stopped and have students research the number of trees you have saved. As part of Earth Day or with your environmental club, share this resource with the entire school community. Encourage students to create tree-safe electronic "ads" for catalog choice (.ORG) that you can share on your class web page. Note: the site requires a free membership, so students should join together with a parent, especially since most catalogs are probably addressed to the adults in the house. Do not permit sharing of personal information (name and address) by students on the site!

"The mission of OneWebDay is to create, maintain, advance, and promote a global day to celebrate online life." Started in 2006, One Web Day is a day for awareness of the power of the Internet and activities to highlight its use in positive ways. While part of the mission of OneWebDay is a sort of "Earth Day for the web," a chance to highlight and preserve the things that make the web a healthy place to learn, work, and share -- all in an ethical way. Schools may want to take the day (or the closest school day)to highlight how much we benefit from the web and how students and families can use it safely and positively.

tag(s): internet safety (118), safety (92)

In the Classroom

Some ideas to celebrate the day: Send class emails to the web sites you find most useful to thank them for their contributions to your class' learning. Find a school web site in another town or country and email the webmaster to relay a "hello" to a classroom there. Make a class wiki to share all the positive things you gain from the web---and invite parents to join in, too. Have students keep a web "diary" for 24 hours, noting every time they use or benefit from someone else using the web (even the weather man on TV gets his/her information from the web!). Predict how many "web contacts" your class will have, then add them up to see how close you came. Plan a OneWebDay event for your school and share it on the OneWebDay site or with the local press. With primary grade students, take the time to point out which activities you do in class come from the web (these children see "the computer" as the genie of all things and do not distinguish between the web and a CD game). Make a giant "web" out of yarn and "connect" everyone on the playground. Send an email from your class to the principal, telling him/her about OneWebDay. What else can you think of?

Users can find average temperature readings by clicking on common locations or entering any world city into a search box. Answers show three readings, Average Maximum Temps, Average Minimum, 24 hour readings, as well as longitude and latitude.. Depending on the area, other data includes rainfall, sea-level pressure, station level pressure, and general information about the area's geography. Searchers must use native language spellings of larger cities and must settle for information about the main cities of the world.

tag(s): climate (95), earth (224), earth day (105), environment (325), temperature (34), weather (201)

In the Classroom

Use the data along with world maps (or Google Earth) for students to draw conclusions about geographic features and weather or to collect weather data over a time period to compare seasonal differences between northern and southern hemispheres. As part of an Earth Day or climate comparison activity, have students create a color-coded climate data "globe" in small groups, showing major cities and their weather data by color. You can use basketballs and sticky colored contact paper to cut out continents and climate zones, or have students make the map on an interactive whiteboard using a globe projection and highlghter tools in different colors. Older students can use the raw data as part of study of climate and cultural differences, environmental issues, or related topics.

[Unfortunately, a couple of the lesson ideas are now dead links, but the remaining ones are good.] The lesson plans are user-friendly and geared toward primary grades. You can also obtain information on applying for grants to create a butterfly garden at your school. That would make a fantastic Earth Day project for a classroom or entire school to promote team work.

This tool allows you to calculate your contribution to greenhouse gasses by answering questions about lifestyle and behavior. A kids' version is also available. The calculator is intended for adults but is quite applicable to teenagers, especially those who drive a car. This site also includes ways to "offset" carbon emissions through tree planting, etc. Some of the information is part of initiatives for which the organization solicits funds, but the research and data are informative and sobering.

This resource was featured in a recent New Teacher Hotline Podcast as one of the Tech Toolbox resources. Hear more about it on the podcast .

tag(s): carbon (23), carbon footprint (11), climate (95), climate change (70), earth (224), earth day (105), environment (325)

Share this and the kids' calculator on your teacher web site and ask students to come up with a plan to decrease their carbon emissions as part of your unit on environmental issues. This could be a "real world" connection in geography study of natural resources or a science class on climate change.

This page has good basic information on the value of worms in our environment, and they include some ways to make it fun, as well, such as with the "worms crawl in" song!(requires Quicktime). Click to learn about other Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle measures in conjunction with composting. Younger students will need someone to read for them.

This is a great site to share on a projector and read together while studying worms or the environment. What a wonderful way to bring Earth Day to a level students can participate in!
