Earth Day Lesson Plans

Looking to learn something new for Earth Day? Try making plarn (plastic yarn) from those hard-to-recycle plastic grocery bags. 

Are you a teacher or in charge of a home schooler? Fulton County Libraries has loads of support materials online to help! The World Almanac for Kids has complete lesson plans keyed to different educational standards, including graphic organizers, printable handouts, science projects, and more. 

Looking for video to go with your Earth Day education? Searching across all Infobase resources for Earth Day material will bring up great content like the 2020 PBS series Power Trip: The Story of Energy. You can search for videos not only by keyword or topic on Access Video, but by educational standard for your lesson plans - below are screen shots to show you how.

standards are options in this search interface. You can then choose your grade level and subject to view the standards.
