April 22

Hi Students,

I hope you have enjoyed your days “off” even though you are still at home.

I am sending here some websites to look at regarding Earth Day. Look through and find some interesting facts about Earth Day. Jot down a few ideas and copy/paste some pictures to make slides. If you need help with creating the slides, please contact me.

Earth Day is a wonderful way to celebrate our planet and our home.

Best wishes, Ms. Spencer

Earth Day is an opportunity to show our appreciation to our great planet! I am inviting you to research and present interesting facts about Earth Day. Instead of using a Google Doc I thought it might be nice to try out Google Slides. It is pretty user friendly and allows you to include cool pictures and different formats. Try to aim for 5 or 6 slides to present your findings. There is no right or wrong as long as the information you present is accurate. Please provide an illustration and information on each slide. Please contact me with questions. I look forward to celebrating Earth Day with each of you!
