All About Earth Day: STEM and MakerSpace challenges, research with Wonderopolis, book suggestions, and engagement with Hyperdocs
Earth Day is one of my favorite times for programming! It's a fantastic time to focus on climate change, connect with experts, and connect with other classrooms on projects to make the world a better place. Usually, I would have Skype-a-Scientists lined up for the week, collaborations going on with teachers on research skills with climate change, and our MakerSpace challenges set up in centers, but remote learning has paused those activities until next year. In the mean time, here are some awesome activities you can do from HOME!
MakerSpace & STEM Challenges for Earth Day
Wonderopolis Article - Earth Day Research
I love Wonderopolis! I've been using it for years to teach information literacy and inquiry-based learning. With our move to remote learning, I finally took one of my graphic organizers for this activity and made it virtual using Google Slides. Find the template here.
Wonderopolis is perfect for studying aspects of Earth Day. Check out the wonders below:
There are tons of articles on Earth, biomes, animals, and more as well.
