Earth Day Learning Activities for Kindergarten

I am a big fan of going green and incorporating paperless activities in a classroom especially on Earth Day! Here are a few Earth Day activities to help you go paperless and help teach your Kindergarten kiddos about taking care of and loving our earth.

Recycling Build a Planter

Tin Can Decorations

Get those botanists working on planting and recycling with this great Earth Day planter.
Think of all the points you can hit in this single science lesson. Why not incorporate a lesson on recycling then turn it into a lesson on what plants need to grow?

Plant flowers for them to nurture or even seedlings to take it a step further and watch and learn as nature takes hold and the seedlings grow into flowers.

And then turn these cute little Earth Day planters into Mother’s Day gifts for your young scientists to share with their Mommies next month!

Earth Day Clap & Build Syllables

Earth Day clap and build syllables game. Plus FREE Earth Day vocabulary posters! Perfect for preschool, pre-k, or kindergarten.

Let the kids clap the syllables then build syllable towers to match their words. Then they can compare which words have the most verses the fewest syllables!

 Water Pollution Experiment

Take your kids on a trash hunt!

Pick up litter that is laying around your school and add it to a jar full of water. As you are adding the trash to the jar, be sure to have your kiddos make their predictions as to what will happen to the water.

Let the kiddos be amazed over the next few days to see what happens!

  Read Alouds

We all know the importance of reading to our kiddos, so don’t forget to include lots and lots of books on the topic to help teach respect for the earth and good habits for caring for our planet. Check out my list of Earth Day books in my 10 Best Books for Earth Day post.
