Looking for ways to teach your kids about Earth day? I’m looking forward to taking my son to Disney’s Earth, which chronicals the lives of three animal families: Polar Bears, Whales, and Elephants. This looks amazing and such a great educational movie!

Here’s a few more educational activities and resources:

Check out Sesame Street: Being Green

Taking kids to the zoo, Botanical Garden, and other local museums that highlight the Earth’s natural resources are great learning experiences, too. If you have a Bank of America card, you can get FREE admission to over 70 museums the first weekend of the month. To find a museum near you, check Here.

In Arizona, the Arizona Children’s Museum is FREE the first Friday of the month for Target Free Friday Nights. And if you have a library card, you can get FREE Admission to the Phoenix zoo or many other museums. More info Here.

It’s Earth Day! (Little Critter)

The Three R’s: Reuse, Reduce, Recycle (What Do You Know About? Books)

Where Does the Garbage Go?: Revised Edition (Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out Science 2)

Earth Day: An Alphabet Book

It is the simple things, too, that help teach our children about the importance of saving- turning off lights, setting up recycling bins, or planting new gardens. How do you teach your children about Earth Day? I’d love to hear your ideas!
