Earth Day

Next Friday, on April 22, we will celebrate Earth Day.  Our town will hold an Earth Day Fair.  It will be a very fun day.

Earth Day reminds us that we need to take care of our planet.   The first Earth Day was held over forty years ago on April 22, 1970.  It began when Senator Gaylord Nelson worried that people did not know that our earth needed our help.  We needed to learn how to take better care of it.  Today Earth Day is celebrated all around the world.  

Are you going to go to an Earth Day celebration?   Our Earth Day Fair is all about learning how to help the environment.  We will learn how to recycle.  We will learn how to save water and electricity.  We will learn new ways to take care of our planet.

When we recycle, it helps our earth in many ways.  How?  We have less garbage in our trash cans when we recycle.  That saves room in landfills where they dump the garbage.  Things made from recycled products use less energy.  Recycling is a small way to make a big difference.

We found some fun Earth Day activities that will help you learn more about recycling and saving energy.  You can make a difference on Earth Day and everyday!  Just follow the links below:
