How to Make Earth Day Relevant to Students

Earth DayWe want to help you and your students celebrate Earth Day in ways that are not only engaging and enlightening, but also thematic and clearly-focused.

Our guide offers two student-friendly activities that will:

  • Help students visualize and understand how oil spills impact our planet
  • Give students the opportunity to use two methods currently used to clean up oil spills

In addition to these two activities, we refer teachers to one of our favorite resources, If It Were My Home. Using this website, students will be able to visualize the impact of the 2010 oil spill by seeing it physically overlaid onto a customizable map.

The last two sections are devoted to our favorite resources: five documentaries and five books that all relate to oil and our environment.

We hope that you and your students enjoy these activities.

Happy Earth Day!
