These Earth Day activities for the classroom focus on STEM learning for a great way to celebrate Earth Day with your elementary students!

They are great as extension or early-finisher activities, or given as take-home independent practice work.

This packet includes a choice board of 9 Earth Day STEM activities, plus all of the links and printables needed to complete the activities.

Students can choose from activities like:

Trash Graph

Dig through the trash! Or empty a recycling bin! Create a bar graph showing the different types of trash or recycling in your bin. The y axis should show the type of trash, and the x axis should show how much there is of each type (the numbers). Make sure to add each different type of trash (i.e. plastic wrapper, cardboard box, banana peel, etc.).

Code an Earth Day Animation

Tell the world about Earth Day! Using Scratch, learn about coding while you create a cool animation. Make your sprites have a conversation about ways we can help look after the Earth. Use the directions and ‘how to’ cards on Scratch if you get stuck.

Make a Rain Gauge

Rain is so important for our planet’s ecosystems. How much rain falls in your area? Make a rain gauge to find out! You will need a water bottle, some rocks, a sharpie and a ruler. Follow this video for instructions on how to make your rain gauge.
