Primary Chalkboard: Earth Day!

Earth Day!

Hey friends! It's Karen from Mrs. Jones's Class.  

So...I'm one of those "Earth Day every day" people. I am a stickler for reusing, recycling, and trying to live as green as I can. Needless to day, I {heart} Earth Day!

Are you interested in becoming a little more "green" too? It is really not that hard, and just a few little changes to your daily routine can help.

One bigger change I made last year was that I joined an organic CSA. A CSA is an acronym for Crop Sharing agriculture. Basically, we buy a "share" of a local organic farm. Ours is small and family owned. We pay a yearly fee and each week in the summer season (May-October) we get a big ole' box of organic produce that is grown and harvested right at our farm. We also visited a few times last year to pick. We are eating healthier, and feel good that we aren't contributing to unnecessary chemicals being added to our food and our earth. Here are some pictures of our weekly goods, as well as from our trips to the farm. What is better than pulling your own carrot from the ground, wiping it off, and eating it! :)
I would highly recommend googling "CSAs" in your area and looking in to it!

Back in the classroom, I like to show my kids how we can be green a little "greener" to help the Earth too!

I created this Earth Day mini-unit to show my little ones the importance of Earth Day, every day! 

Included is this super cute Mosaic Earth Day craftivity, which you can use some some of those scraps of construction paper up with. 

You can find it here in my TpT shop. 

You can also grab this little Earth Day mini-book 

Peace, love, and green!


  1. Our school does a wonderful fundraiser every year to donate old/unused books to another school that needed it. I LOVED having discussions about donating with our class. :)

  2. I am an Earth Day everyday believer too! I can't wait to mobe back and get a CSA too!

    1. :) So cool that you are moving back, and yay for the CSA! My brother now volunteers there one day a week at the farm and his family gets a free share each week too.

  3. We joined a CSA last year and loved it, Karen! In addition to all the other benefits, we loved trying out all the new-to-us vegetables that are now favorites. We're all signed up for this year and can't wait for the goodness to begin again next month!

    1. Totally agree Linda! We try so many new things that I NEVER in a million years would buy at the grocery store.
