Today marks the 50th anniversary of World Earth Day.
The day is celebrated to demonstrate environmental protection.
The theme for World Earth Day 2020 is 'climate action'.
With the majority of the globe in lockdown, however, 2020 will be completely different with organisers asking people to rally online for the first ever Digital Earth Day.
With the current home schooling regime — make this 50th anniversary part of your day TODAY.
- Reminders around the home can help us change our habits
- Having children think about ways they can have a positive effect on the environment and making signs to remind them can be an effective way of promoting change
- Children can use a variety of social platforms to share the message
- Talk 'Trees' — it might be difficult to plant a tree today but encourage children to look at the trees today and make a pledge to plant a tree when the lockdown is over
- During lockdown we are all re-cycling — make this a focus of your learning today
Keep safe everyone!
