April 22, the International Day of Mother Earth, was proclaimed as an official “day” by the United Nations in 2009. This day seeks to raise awareness of the different problems humans have caused such as pollution, global warming, overpopulation, and more! Now more than ever action needs to be taken to stop and reverse the harm done to our planet.

One way to introduce and talk to your classes about this topic is to brainstorm ways to help at home.

For example:

Reusa, reduce y recicla.
Ahorra energía y agua.
Planta árboles.
Camina más.

You can also teach a song to reinforce your conversation about El Día Internacional de la Madre Tierra.

Last but not least. I have two resources on Teachers Pay Teachers that can support your teaching:

Have a beautiful Earth Day Celebration!
