Earth Day: Student Action Plan

Earth Day is coming up soon and one important message to share with students is that their actions and choices today help shape the future. One way to help students start thinking about their choices is to get them doing something that will lead to a change or make an impact.

Having students choose and action that they can do, repeat, observe and reflect upon is one way to get them thinking more about how they can help shape the future.  This action plan activity is designed to help your students do just that!

Students choose an action they can do themselves for a week that they think will help impact the future.
