Earth Day Kids Recycling/Sorting Activity (Free to Download and Print)
This fun printable set is made for the Earth Warrior at heart, and includes a special printable recycling activity where kids can cut out and use cards to sort through “trash” and learn what can be recycled.
It also helps them identify the different types of recycable materials!
The recyclable items include:
- Water Bottles
- Food Waste
- Plastic Bottles
- Broken Glass
- Paper Packaging
This would be a great precursor activity to going out in the community on Earth Day to clean up a park, or other community area.
Earth Day Plant Protector Service Reflection Printable
Also included in the packet is a Earth Day reflection sheet for kids to fill out after their service activity.
There is room for them to write what trash they collected, any wildlife they spotted, and what earth-friendly choices they made.
There is even room to draw a little picture of their day or anything else they are inspired to show!
Earth Day Award Certificate
Kids love getting awards of course, so we’ve included a fun little award for all of our planet protectors to celebrate their efforts!
These activities can be extended from the classroom to home, and help create the next generation who cares for the Earth!
