Description

April 22, 2020 will mark the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the largest civic-focused day of action in the world. For Earth Day's 50th Anniversary, engage your students in a variety of fun, educational and impactful learning opportunities! As afterschool programs, you are unique in your ability to reach and shape future leaders outside of the classroom. Earth Day Network has resources to support you as you host events that can foster discussion and design activities to help students understand and address environmental issues. 

For example, hold citizen science data collection events that encourage your students to learn about environmental issues and connect them with lessons from school. Organize environmental-themed craft projects that allow them to channel their creativity or host cooking workshops where they can make sustainable recipes. Explore what species are local to your community and think of ways your students can help protect them.
