Earth Day is celebrated on April 21 every year. However, I think that every day we should raise our students´ awareness  of the importance of protecting our planet.
It is never too late to act. On the contrary, we should act everyday doing simple but significant things like taking shorter showers, planting, reducing the amount of waste, recycling, unplugging appliances or devices (vampire energy) and some others you can read below. As usual you will also find some worksheets for your students to do some work and some other activities you may find interesting.
I hope you find this post useful and contagious!!
"The April 22 Earth Day, founded by Senator Gaylord Nelson, was first organized in 1970 to promote ecology and respect for life on the planet as well as to encourage awareness of the growing problems of air, water and soil pollution.
The April 22 Earth Day is usually celebrated with outdoor performances, where individuals or groups perform acts of service to earth. Typical ways of observing Earth Day include planting trees, picking up roadside trash, conducting various programs for recycling and conservation, using recyclable containers for snacks and lunches."
Here you are some more suggestions  to work as projects in the classrooms and a worksheet  if you also want to provide some language production.
