This environmental education site, a cooperative effort across the entire U.S. government, is filled with creative ways to make learning about the environment fun! Click on the "General lesson ideas for teachers" link to learn more about specific topics and take a virtual trip to "Recycle City," reviewed and link here. The "Homework resources for students" page provides an annotated collection of kid-friendly environmental Web sites filled with clever and interactive activities. Learn about the history of Earth Day, ways to celebrate in your classroom or at home, and more. There is quite a bit to explore!

In the Classroom

Share this site on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Read the history of Earth Day together. Have cooperative learning groups explore different ways to "take action" and then challege them to transform their learning and create a multimedia presentation to share with the class. Try using Adobe Spark for K-12, reviewed here, or Sway, reviewed here. Why not ask students to redefine their learning using one of these video tools (click tool name to see review): Rooclick, Animatron, Powtoon, or Plotagon. Then, have students share it with the class using a site such as TeacherTube (explained here).
