I love talking about ways to help the Earth. I can’t help myself and as Earth Day slowly approaches I find myself wanting to share more and more ways we can limit pollution. It is so important for children and adults to understand where pollution comes from and how we can help make a difference. I hope you enjoy these excellent ways for teaching kids about pollution. I am also sharing a great set of free printables that you can download below. Enjoy!

Awesome Ways for Teaching Kids About Pollution
Teaching Kids About Pollution
When I was thinking about this pollution set up for our Science area, I knew I wanted a hands-on and visual display. Children learn by doing so having them collect grass, trash, making clean snow and dirty snow, among other things – they are getting to experience what pollution is.
After your jars are filled it is good to introduce your cards and pictures sharing and or asking your children what they see. You can also place the word card below the picture so they have a full visual of each idea.
Air, Land, and Water Pollution Activities
Some ways you can help with pollution is:
Pick up trash (anytime)
Turn off the lights and electronics
Use energy efficient products
Walk when you can or ride a bike
Use eco friendly products
Say no to fertilizers
Never allow our oceans to be used for waste
Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle
These are a few ways that everyone can help.
Reading books about ways to make a difference and help the Earth is another great way to get children involved.
Being a good role model and teaching children how they can make a difference will ultimately benefit everyone in the future.
I hope you are ready to make a difference. We can all do it by working together.
