Today we kick off our Earth Day 50 celebration with week four of our environmental lesson plans! The first Earth Day in 1970 mobilized millions of Americans for the protection of the planet. On April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans — 10% of the U.S. population at the time — took to the streets, college campuses, and hundreds of cities to protest environmental degradation and usher in the modern environmental movement. Massive environmental protection laws like the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act are credited as an early success of Earth Day.

If your student was still in school this week, there’s no doubt he or she would have spent the week learning about the environment, limited natural resources, the threats to the planet, and ways we can all make a difference. These are important concepts no student should skip. askHRgreen.org is pleased to offer this easy-to-use lesson plan to help elementary and middle school students learn more about Earth Day and what we can all do to celebrate the Earth this week.
