These Earth Day STEM activities are an easy and fun way to celebrate Earth Day with your middle school 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 activities for students, plus all of the links and printables needed to complete the activities.

Students can choose from activities like:

Make a Water Filter

Celebrate Earth day by making your own water filter. You only need a few inexpensive and simple materials to complete this project. This video will provide a comparison between two water filters. You will learn which one is better for cleaning polluted water. After watching the video, create your own water filtering device.

Regrow Food

Create renewable food sources from kitchen leftovers and learn about asexual reproduction. Collect scraps of onions, leaf lettuces, garlic, ginger root, celery, and potatoes to regrow items. Research what types of plants can be regrown, create a growing environment, and observe and nurture the plants until they are ready to harvest.

Oil Spill Simulation Challenge

Recognize the impact humans have on the environment by researching information and pictures about actual oil spill events. Create a simulated oil spill with vegetable oil, water, feathers, cotton balls, sponges, and Dawn dish soap. Find out about how to clean up after the oil spill disaster.
