We read and interact with a little books, color code several passages, watch a couple Discovery Education clips, a do some reading comprehension too.
Right after lunch we GET MOVING into the hallway and do a fun little spin on “Read the Room” It’s called “Helping or Hurting”. Then we do some darling art. We end our day with marching orders to help our families learn to love the Earth with a super simple community project!
Of course, you know any unit that I create is going to have art. I have 3 super simple projects! It’s a fast paced day that leaves my classroom beautiful and my students full of information!

BONUS FREEBIE-Read, Think, and Match by Sarah’s 1st Grade Snippets
Each night this week my students will take home an Earth Day paper from my unit and the fabulous freebies above! This really drives home the concept and the kids are practicing valuable literacy skills! Of course, I end all the learning with a writing unit and some grades in my grade book using a great test from the unit. Hallelujah for a Social Studies grade and a Paragraph Writing grade!
