April: If you’re a kid… What are you doing for Earth Day?

Parents: If you are a parent and would like your child to learn English and learn about being sustainable, sit them down here and they will gain the following:

  • Learners find out about Earth day and how it is relevant to them.
  • Learn vocabulary related to being green.
  • Practice listening with a great song about being green.

Teachers: here is a slideshow for classroom use, a lesson plan here, and worksheets here!

Children: If you want to dance and sing along to this song while you do the exercises, please do! 🙂

Before the Song:

April 22nd is Earth Day. On this day people do things that are good for the Earth, such as plant trees or recycle plastic. What other things do you think they do? Make a list of 4 or 5 things.

While you listen to the song:

Are any of the things on your list in the song? Listen, and find out (by all means sing along and dance too!)

Language Learning:

Read these phrases. Listen to the song again. Which phrases are in the song and which are not? Put a tick or a cross.
