Learning by Doing: A Roundup of Earth Day Printables!

Earth Day is only a few short days away!  It’s a time when our communities share a like-minded cause of remembering to care and cherish our Earth.

Earth Day came about after six years of effort from then Senator Gaylord Nelson, who, back in the 1960s, had the foresight to look at the long term impact of pollution on the environment. He was instrumental in getting his message out to college students, who took this issue on with concern and enthusiasm for this project. Earth Day became a National Awareness day on January 20, 1970, with the date set for celebration as April 22 of every year. In 2007, it is estimated that one billion people recognized Earth Day in some way.

Internationally, Earth Day is celebrated at different times, in approximately 175 countries. In the northern hemisphere, it is observed in the spring; in the southern hemisphere, Earth Day is observed in the fall.

There are a multitude of ways to celebrate this very special day from planting a tree, reading Earth Day related books to be “car-free” for a day. Many parents, teachers and caregivers also love the opportunity to deepen the understanding and wonder of this great planet we live on through activity and play. Below is a roundup of many wonderful activities and crafts from moms and earth-lovers just like you and I. Enjoy!

The day is observed to make all of us aware of our responsibilities towards our mother earth. The way we have been taking all that we can from the earth will one day finish all the coal and hydrocarbon from the earth. Same with all the minerals. We are extracting what all we can. The earth is our greatest friend but we earthlings behave as if we are the masters. The earth supports us in all the ways. It gives us the atmosphere to breathe, the water to drink, and food to eat. It gives us thousands of varieties of plants and it gives us the place to make our home. The earth gives its all to us without any protest, April 22nd is a day (and it shouldn’t be the ONLY day) that we can give back to Mother Earth. Reconnecting with nature is the best way to remind yourself why we’re fighting so hard to protect it.
