I read different picture books to teach each topic. Then we discuss the topic and make a note sheet about the topic (as they will need this for later in the week).
To show how things are recycled.
To talk about endangered animals
To talk about oil spills/pollution and what can happened to the environment.
To also discuss the importance of trees.
The last day of the week we review all of these topics and the children have to write how they can help the earth. They must use details about something we learned during the week. I use this paper that I print out smaller and attach them to a bulletin board.
