This collection of resources is designed to support teaching environmental education concepts around Earth Day, or any time of year. Explore activities, articles, maps, and multimedia about the Earth's physical features and human impacts on the planet. You'll also find professional development resources and information about environmental careers.
Students learn all about Earth Day and the environmental issues it addresses.
Students learn about the Human Footprint data set, analyze a map showing where and to what extent humans have influenced Earth, and participate in a class discussion.
Students work together to illustrate the water cycle as a class. Each student writes an imaginary story about the journey of one drop of water through the water cycle. Then students discuss some of the reasons why the ocean is important.
