Earth Day Visors

This song comes to mind when I think of Earth Day...

Oh, mercy mercy me
Oh, things ain't what they used to be
No, no
Where did all the blue sky go?
Poison is the wind that blows
From the north, east, south, and sea
Oh, mercy mercy me
Oh, things ain't what they used to be
No, no
Oil wasted on the oceans and upon our seas
Fish full of mercury
Oh, mercy mercy me
Oh, things ain't what they used to be
No, no
Radiation in the ground and in the sky
Animals and birds who live nearby are dying
Oh, mercy mercy me
Oh, things ain't what they used to be
What about this overcrowded land?
How much more abuse from man can you stand?

My kindy cuties have become quite the tree, wood/paper,  and animal experts.  Thank you FOSS science!  There is no doubt they are very passionate about everything and anything that has to do with the Earth and keeping her a clean, green, beautiful, fighting machine!  Today we made our  'I Am A Friend of the Earth' visors.  Students will proudly wear these visors throughout the month of April as we garden, recycle, pick up trash around the school, and walk in the Walk-A-Thon.








You can find this visor reproducible and more Earth Day activities in my Teachers Pay Teachers Shop! Just click on the image above!

    1. I love the name of your blog too! ; ) I am such a sucker for cupcakes. In fact I was just chatting with my friends this weekend about Sprinkles Cupcakes. Have you ever had those? They are fantastic! I love your blog! My cat LuLu and your orange kittie look like they could be twins. I also saw on your blog that you are from New Jersey! My boyfriend is from New Jersey and I just made my first trip back east over winter break. I had a great time!
