Where Does the Garbage Go?
Where Does the Garbage Go? - Paul Showers,Randy Chewning

810L

Pre K-5

This book tells children about the logistics of garbage and where it goes.  I would use this book around Earth day and explain to the students the importance of keeping our world clean.  I would take my students outside and we would clean the playground with gloves and garbage bags.

Make Way for Ducklings
Make Way for Ducklings - Robert McCloskey

Make Way for Ducklings by Robert McCloskey is a 4.1 on the Accelerated Reading leveling system. The story is a fictitious book about a pair of ducks that live in a pond. When it comes time for their eggs to hatch, they realize that they must move because their pond has too many people and is too dangerous. In their search they are helped by a kind policeman when crossing the street. In the end they find the perfect pond to raise their babies. This could be used for two very different topics. It could be used when a new student joins the class as a read aloud. It could help the new student feel more comfortable. As a teacher, stress that moving is not a bad thing, and a silver lining can always be found. This story could also be used around Earth Day to teach the importance of animals and the environment. Teach the students that just as the policeman, we have to take care of animals and there are many ways to do that.

The Lorax - Dr. Seuss

I love, love, love this book. It was a fun and cute way Dr. Suess had of telling children to save the planet because if they don't it won't be around long if not, also that things don't change unless we step in. We can't rely on someone else to do it. This is great to use for earth day. The students could write about a way they could "save the planet" and make it better. Then as a class, we could all plant one plant together and encourage students to take it home and replant at home. It's a fun way to teach earth day using literacy and science all in one lesson! Intended for 2nd-4th grade.

The Giving Tree - Shel Silverstein

This book could be read for kindergarten through sixth grade. A great activity for older grades is to read the book and then write about a way that they personally could give back to the earth. This book is about how a boy took and took and took from the giving tree his whole life and the tree was always there for him, so you could have a lesson around earth day where you teach students about giving back to the earth since it gives so much to us and then complete the activity previously described. LOVE THIS BOOK.

Clifford's Spring Clean-Up (Clifford the Big Red Dog) - Norman Bridwell

Cute little Clifford the Big Red Dog book. It is spring time and Clifford and the family decide to clean their house. The book also discusses things people in their neighborhood are doing for Earth Day. At the end of the book there is a page that tells you what day Earth Day is on and things you can do to participate for Earth Day. You could use this in your classroom to read on Earth Day (April 22) and actually do an activity to participate in Earth Day and talk about why this day is important and come up with different way to help keep the planet clean. I think this book would be best to use in K-1.
