“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.  The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light.  And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness.  God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.

And God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.”  And God made the expanse and separated the waters that were under the expanse from the waters that were above the expanse. And it was so.   And God called the expanse Heaven.  And there was evening and there was morning, the second day.

 And God said, “Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.” And it was so. 10 God called the dry land Earth,  and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good.

{Genesis 1: 1-10}

Earth Day Fun

Earth Day is coming up and when I was at Crayons to Computers last week I found these stickers…

So then I created this little writing activity to help kids celebrate Earth Day.  Like other writing activities I’ve posted, there is a pre-writing activity where students are to list 5 things they will do to show the Earth some love.  🙂  I did this with a couple students yesterday and they had great ideas like plant trees, pick up litter, go to the park, have a picnic, feed the birds, ride their bike, etc.  Then students write a paragraph using their ideas about how they will show the Earth some love.  There is also a poster I made that you can use to display students’ writing.  I am going to have my students make posters too using these Earth Day stickers!
