Earth Day is just around the corner. The idea of stewardship and taking care of our natural resources is one of the most important things we need to teach our students about. We learn about and practice recycling all year, but it is always nice to give a little extra attention to this topic this month. Here are some Earth Day and recycling resources that you may find helpful in your classroom.
