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    

I have know Diane of Foreign Language Fun for YEARS!  Check out her cool teaching tips, songs, chants for Earth Day Fun right here at this easy to navigate site …. thank you Diane!  (Some of the downloads, songs, chants do cost a little bit of money!)
