We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors. We borrow it from our children.Chief Seattle
I grew up in Oregon, where ‘not recycling’ is considered a mortal sin, so sometimes I’m caught off guard when environmentalism isn’t universally taught to children. Good habits are best built young. We have an incredible opportunity to raise conscious little ones who change the course of history. Earth Day is every day!
This free printable includes five Earth Day classroom posters you can use in your homeschool space. You can use these posters just for Earth Day, or keep them up year round to continue sparking conversations with your children about how we can live green! We definitely need to model good habits consistently with kids if we want them to stick.
One of the posters looks a little bit like a worksheet. If your kiddo needs it, help them fill in the boxes. Then keep this Earth Day poster on the wall or your fridge so they stay inspired! Children are more likely to stick with a new routine or habit if it’s their own idea, so let your kid’s creativity shine!
The next Earth Day classroom poster offers some easy tips for saving energy. Hang this on the fridge as a frequent reminder. Or use it in your homeschool curriculum to jumpstart a brainstorming session of other ways your family can save energy!
And this Dr. Seuss quotation just gets me every time. All our kids are born naturally overflowing with love. Let’s show them how to use that love to make a difference.
