Printable Earth Day Worksheet Ideas:
Print and Color
The designs I’ve created in this set of printable Earth Day worksheets vary in terms of complexity for kids of all ages. In all instances, you can tailor the specific activity to your child’s age, just by offering them a few tips and ideas.
The first option for little kids is to simply print out the first page for coloring. Younger children might color to their heart’s content while you speak to them about the holiday and go over some important facts and recycling tips.
As with all activities for the little ones, you can make it fun and educational at the same time. So consider giving them glitter, glue, paint or other craft supplies to decorate their page with. At the same time, you can discuss Earth Day vocabulary and explain the meaning to them.
Word Search, Definitions and Sentences
The second worksheet printable is a word search with vocabulary having to do with our planet Earth. Little kids will have a fun time simply searching for the words and circling them or coloring the found word with markers or crayons.
However, older kids can expand on this worksheet by looking up the definition of the words to ensure they understand the meaning. Then you can go further in discussing how the term is related to Earth Day and perhaps give example sentences. Then you can ask how they might use the word in a sentence.
Although we often give our kids printables to help past the time when you need to do something else, it’s also important to touch base every so often. Spend time with your kids in discussing what they colored or what they found as they completed the worksheet. Any kind of discussion over activity worksheets help to foster the parent-child relationship as well. It’s also fine just to listen to them tell you what they did and what they thought. All of this can really help them learn more and enjoy the activity as well!
Finally there is the final worksheet that offers a full page of written prompts to ask older kids to write about what they can recycle, reuse and reduce specifically. This is a great exercise to wrap up on Earth Day, so kids can contemplate how they can make a difference and do their part.
For younger kids, this can be a discussion and you can help them write in their answers. It would also be a fun activity to go back and forth, stating how you would answer the prompt, then asking them what they think and how they would answer.
Ultimately, the idea is to facilitate discussion and thinking around the theme of Earth Day and how we can preserve our planet together!
