Lesson Ideas for Earth Day and Easter

Lesson Ideas for Earth Day and Easter
April is a busy month for teachers everywhere. This is the time when we start planning for our end of the year student evaluations. Since you are so busy, we thought this is good time for us to give some fresh lesson ideas for the month of April.

1. Beach Erosion - This lesson calls attention to the smallest changes that can take place over time.

2. Planet For Sale! - You and your partner are realtors who are promoting a planet in our solar system.

3. Hubble Telescope - This activity draws your students into that debate and asks them to choose a side and defend it.

4. Candy Lights - This is a quick and easy experiment that can be used to introduce a unit on chemical bonds or light.

5. A New Flavor of Jellybean - Students create their own flavor of jelly bean in this activity.

6. Duck Feet Addition - Students practice their addition skills in this activity.

7. Jelly Bean Math - In this lesson, students use a bag of jellybeans to solve math problems.

8. Comparing Eggs - A great compare and contrast activity.
