Earth Day

On April 22, 2012, billions of people around the world will celebrate Earth Day – a day set aside for reflecting about our impact on the earth, and just maybe move people to improve their environment. Earth Day is a great opportunity to model, share, and teach kids about issues that affect the planet, like recycling, water quality, nature conservancy, gardening, and ways to reduce our energy usage.

 

The web offers a host of resources to inspire you to find a way to discuss or celebrate Earth Day with your family. Here are some of the best Earth Day sites for kids.
