Earth Day Close Reading Toolkit FREEBIE | by Erin Beers from Mrs Beers Language Arts Class

Earth and Sun unit..Grade 2 I love teaching about the solar system, but before we get into that, we always spend a few weeks learning about the Earth and Sun. I put together this little supplemental book for the students to keep track of what we are learning about. Feel free to download it for free.

Earth Day is April 22nd but these books work year round. They focus on real ways kids can change their habits and help the environment, on how and why we should recycle and provide cautionary tales about what could happen if we don't. Earth day books ? Yes but they are everyday books too.>> No Time for Flashcards
