Earth Day Playdough Tallies

Earth Day 10 Frames

Tallies are a great way to count and represent numbers. We LOVE this Fine Motor idea of creating the tallies with playdough, and of course we did them in earth theme colors.

Making 10 is a kindergarten math standard, but we can start working on it in preschool. We used playdough balls, but bottle lids would be a fun option here as well.

Spin & Recycle Graphing Activity

Spin & Count Earth Day Cleanup Game

Graphing is another important early math and science skill. Here we use a spinner to randomly choose our colors to graph.

You may have a chance to go out and actually pick up some trash. This game is an indoor, small table version of that. We scattered garbage (pom poms)  on our earth. Then we rolled a dice and counted how many pieces of trash to pick up.

Tree Planters Counting Activity

Roll, Count & Conserve Water Math Game

I love to bring nature into our learning. For this activity, I would collect twigs from outside to use as your counting trees. You can “plant” them in a pot of dirt or use brown playdough.

Another important Earth Day topic is water conservation. This activity is a fun way to practice counting while pretend play collecting and saving our water.

Earth Day Sight Words Activity

Planting trees is such an important way to help our planet. Plant some real ones if you can, but you can also practice letter matching with these fun paper trees.

Sight words are a critical part of early fluency in reading. We are practicing our first 25 sight words here using our letter stamps and some playdough.

Earth Day Alphabet Matching

Earth Day Syllables Activity

A recycle-themed sensory bin could be a great way to use these letter cards. I would fill the bin with bottle lids and plastic letters. The kids can fish out the letters and place them on the matching cards.

There are so many fun ways to use this Earth Day Syllables activity. We used marbles to mark the syllables, but bottle lids would be fun as well.

Earth Day Sorting Activities for Preschool

Sorting is a skill kids need in the future for science and classification. Here we get to practice sorting and practice becoming a good members of the community as well.

Classroom Recycle Sorting Labels

This activity helps children differentiate and categorize various items to place them with like items. This is a math and literacy skill, and it helps children practice recycling.

One of the best ways to practice recycling is to set up a recycling station in your classroom. We use these labels for this. Kids can sort items they bring from home or in our box.
