I share with you these coloring pages from Apples4TheTeacher and below are some words that go hand in hand with the coloring pages that you can use orally and visually with the children you are teaching.  (All sheets at this link are FREE!)

Earth Day = El día de la tierra        Earth = la tierra           Planet el planeta        

Water = el agua      Sky  = el cielo     Globe  = el globo

Plastic el plástico    Aluminum = el aluminio    Glass = el vidrio     Paperel papel

    Great post, Beth. Those are useful.
    Our favorite craft last year was handprint Earths. You cut out a large blue paper circle, paint the child’s hand with green paint, and stamp one hand facing up, and then again, facing down, to look like continents. It turned out really cute, and I’m planning on doing it again, to document the kids’ growth since last year.

    I LOVE this Lisa! It’s so great how, as teachers and as moms, we exchange ideas and tips and resources…all for making this Earth a better place. Tell you what – you do that project, take a few pictures of how adorable these Earths are, and send them to me via e-mail (do you know how to do that?). In exchange, I will gladly send YOU a Boca Beth bilingual t-shirt!

    How is that for a fair trade? What will I do with the pictures? I would love to share them here on my blog and in my e-newsletter at some point.

    Thank you / gracias.
