Here's an awesome Rubric for a lesson plan about rain forests! You can use this for Elementary or Middle School students. Learning about the Rainforest is an excellent way to help students appreciate the significant role that trees and other plants have in the environment.
Upper-grade students will be able to learn valuable math-related skills (such as a graphing chart) to take stock of their own school's cafeteria waste. This is a great way to remind older students why it's so important to not take the environment (as well as their own food) for granted! A crucial lesson for Earth Day (and any day)!
Both informative and creative, this video will provide historical facts and ideas for how to celebrate this special holiday, with things that everyone can do together, either in the classroom or at home!
