The Earth’s Birthday Project provides lots of resources for teachers to plan their Earth Day activities for their classroom, as well as hands-on science activities that can be used throughout the year. Teachers will find the resources necessary to prepare their class and participate in the “Big Gift,” a program to help save the rain forests. The Hands-on Science section offers information and activities on all kinds of bugs and butterflies such as ants, luna moths, ladybugs, and praying mantis, as well as enrichment activities that include spiders, insects, and more. Ant Web hunts for three grade groups (2-3, 4-5, 6-7) are available for download in .pdf format.
