Bilingual Activities, Crafts, Books and More for Earth Day

This page is being continually updated as I discover new resources. For the most up-to-date information, be sure to start by checking out my Pinterest board on Earth Day.


Activity Sheets & Lesson Plans

Primera Escuela has a good number of activity sheets for parents to download. Best for preschoolers.

ABCTeach has a lot of great printables for Earth Day.

Be sure to take a look at Enchanted Learning's site. They have a ton of crafts that are related to the earth and wildlife.

For older children, teachers be sure to check out Canopy in the Clouds. I wrote about this incredible site a while ago, and now their Spanish site, dosel en las nubes, is up and running!

Proyecto Bosk is a Spanish website for children that helps students think about climate change, global warming and care for the forests. Download the 30-page "actividades" booklet for excellent handouts for students.


Crafts & Printables

 The Latin Baby Book Club just posted a tutorial for how to make your own bilingual book using recycled materials.

Crafting a Green World has some fabulous crafts using recycled materials, like this chalkboard globe

No Time for Flash Cards has a cute tutorial on how to make a (recycled) earth.

Spanish Earth Day or Environmental Unit Vocabulary and Activities from Liz's Lessons.

Me on the Map bilingual activity in Spanish or English by Mrs. Castro.


Earth-Loving Websites

Reciclando en la escuela is a fabulous site, written completely in Spanish, with some of the most imaginative ideas for recycling materials into educational tools/toys/activities.

The Magnifying Glass is another favorite of mine. And all this week this nature blog has been celebrating Earth Day. Go have a look-see.

What Eats? is a food website for kids. Lots of easy information here that will fascinate your littles.
