Children learn about the environmental activist and women's rights advocate Wangari Maathai. Students will read a biography about the first African woman to win a Nobel Peace Prize and answer nonfiction comprehension questions about the text.
This year on Earth Day, celebrate our planet with Earth Day resources! With these resources, you can plan educational and engaging activities that help students learn how to be responsible stewards of our world. They can also learn Earth science, like how our planet rotates around the sun, the layers that make up the planet, and lots of earth-related academic vocabulary. After planning for Earth Day, explore our Memorial Day resources, which is just around the corner.
