blue bullet point The first Earth Day, on April 22, 1970, is widely credited with launching the modern environmental movement. In the United States, the passage of the landmark Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act and many other groundbreaking environmental laws soon followed.

blue bullet point Today, Earth Day is celebrated in more than 192 countries.

On this page, you will find an E.A.R.T.H. Day acrostic poem

Earth Day Acrostic Poem Student Example

Above: Example of Earth Day Acrostic Poem Globe Template

Earth Day Elementary School Students Lesson Plans Ideas blue bullet point For these E.A.R.T.H. Day acrostic poems, students lightly color the background of the continents and oceans in their globes, and then use a dark pen to write their acrostic poems on the lines.

blue bullet point Students cut out the globe templates along the thick black border, and then they will have unique globe shaped poetry templates.

blue bullet point These Earth Day poems will make a colorful bulletin board display in your classroom that will highlight this important date which is recognized around the world.

blue bullet point This set of Earth Day lesson plans includes:

  • first draft printable worksheets
  • black and white globe templates and printable worksheets
  • globe templates and printable worksheets in 5 different colors
  • matching 5 page bulletin board display banner
  • 18 globe bulletin board accent pieces with conservation tips written inside of them

blue bullet point Everything that you need to complete these Earth Day poems is included in this teaching resources set. All that you will need is scissors, coloring pencils, and pens.

blue bullet point For creative writing assignments, I believe that it is important for students to go through the steps of the writing process.

blue bullet point For this reason, my students never begin writing their Earth Day poems on their final draft templates, instead they write on first draft worksheets. Then, they edit and revise their poems on their own, with a partner, or in individual writing conferences with me.

Below is an example of the first draft worksheet that
is included in this set of Earth Day teaching resources.

Earth Day April 22 Acrostic Poem Worksheet

Fun Lesson Plan Ideas for Earth Day Elementary Students blue bullet point After students have edited and revised the first drafts of their poems, you should give them their final draft globe templates.

blue bullet point The Earth Day globe templates measure 9 inches in length and 7 inches in width.

blue bullet point For their final drafts, students lightly color the continents and oceans using color pencils. Then, using a dark ink pen, students write their Earth Day poems on the lines.

blue bullet point These globe templates have thick border lines, so it is easy for the students to cut out their globe poetry templates themselves.

blue bullet pointBy using these unique globe templates, you will be able to create a dynamic poetry bulletin board display that highlights an important environmental theme as well.

Teaching Resources and Ideas for Celebrating Earth Day blue bullet point As I am introducing this poetry assignment to my students, I like to begin by sharing my Earth Day poem with my students.

blue bullet point At the front of my classroom, I display an example of what the final draft globe templates look like.

blue bullet point By providing a visual example at the very beginning of this Earth Day lesson, my students know what their poetry assignments will look like when they have completed their final drafts.

blue bullet point For final draft poetry assignments, when I give my students fun templates to write on, I have found that they tend to use their best effort, and they are more careful to not make careless spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors.

This set of poetry teaching resources includes 5 colors of Earth Day globes.
Below is an example of the red template.

Earth Day Creative Writing Teaching Resources and Ideas blue bullet point Besides the red template shown above, there are yellow, orange, green, and blue globe templates in this set of Earth Day Poems (see examples below).

blue bullet point You can choose to print out multiple copies of these 5 colorful globe templates and give them to your students to write their poems on instead of the black and white globe templates.

blue bullet point If you choose to use the color globe templates with your students, the finished bulletin board display of your students' Earth Day poems will be a bright array of rainbow colors.

blue bullet point Your colorful Earth Day poetry bulletin board display will be sure to capture everyone's attention!

Earth Day April 22 Bulletin Board Display Banner for Student Poems

I stumbled across your website over the weekend and I'm SO glad I did! Some great ideas and an extra thank you for the UK spellings! I bought the back to school pencils, punctuation puppies, Willy Wonka group project and the characters! I think these are great resources and even though it's the summer holidays, I've been into school to get my display paper up and have put up the title banners - they look brilliant! Thank you!

Heidi, I just had to write and let you know that your website has helped me create the most awesome author study of Roald Dahl's books. My students loved completing the big animal shaped projects you designed for The Enormous Crocodile, Esio Trot, and The Giraffe, and the Pelly and Me. For the final project, they had so much fun writing and drawing about the characters from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory using your Willy Wonka Factory project. Thanks for sharing your scrumdiddlyumptious ideas !

I feel so fortunate to have found your website and I have referred several of my co-workers to your website. Just for the month of January, there were three teachers displaying your book reports. I had the trophy reports, my neighbor to the left had the computer reports, and my neighbor to the right had the birthday cake reports. Thank you so very much for all of your work!

I just wanted to say thank you for the most amazing teaching resources that I have ever come across in my thirty years of teaching. I have used many of your book report sets this year and my students absolutely loved them. What was particularly pleasing was seeing some of my reluctant readers (especially the boys) really wanting to read books and complete the activities. Keep up the great work!
