Every year for Earth Day I like to read one of my top 5 favorite books of all time:
No matter how many times I read this book when the little wumps cry out "wump, wump!" and are forced into their underground hole, I cry.
Boo-hoo cry in front of all of my students. I am a BIG softy when it comes to little critters.
Last years kiddos cried right along with me.
This year I've added this writing activity to the mix.
I am going to have my kiddos choose something from nature and write about how the world would be different without that one thing.
I will probably choose the elephant, I always do.
You can grab the freebie directly from Google Docs.
And you might want to check out last years Earth Day post for some fun, paper free, interactive ideas. :)
Now, I'm off to remember what I'm teaching next week. Wump. Wump.
