Earth Day 2013

In celebration of Earth Day this past April 22nd, we made our third annual Paperless Earth Day books. You can see our past Earth Day books by clicking here (Earth Day 2011) and here (Earth Day 2012) . We used KidPix4 and TuxPaint to illustrate our ideas. Take a peek at some ways we take care of the Earth.

These books are also embedded on our eBook page. You can click on this link or find eBooks in the menu bar above.

Our classes also enjoyed playing Michael, Michael Go Recycle!

…and reading an Earth Day book on Starfall.

  1. I love your ideas and all the beautiful messages. I am going to share this with my class tomorrow. They have been reading about global footprints and I know they will love your presentations. Keep creating.

    • Dear Fiona,

      Thanks so much for the encouragement! We always have fun with this project. Has your class ever made a paperless (ebook) before?

      A big part of our Technology class’ learning is about Internet Safety and leaving a positive digital footprint. Here is a Sqworl collection of some of our favorite Internet Safety sites. http://sqworl.com/fmtdh2

      Our students are wondering what grade you teach and where you live? We love to find new blogging buddies. 🙂

    I really liked your video. Did you enjoy making it? What websites did you use to make the Earth Day video?

    • Dear Joey,

      Thanks for leaving a comment! We did enjoy making this book. We used KidPix and TuxPaint to make our pictures. Then Mrs. Moore put them all into 1 PowerPoint slideshow. Finally, she posted the book on Slideshare.

      What would you like to make a book about?

  3. Dear Techie Kids,

    My name is Matt. Your paperless books is awesome! I think that it was a great book you made.

    I have heard about composting in science class. I haven’t tried before. One Earth Day tip I can share is you can recycle anything that can be recycled.

    From,
    Matt

    • Dear Matt,

      Thank you for visiting us! What a nice compliment. 🙂

      Yes, I bet composting would make an excellent science experiment. What did you learn about composting?

  4. Dear 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Grade Class,

    Those were two amazing books. It must of taken a lot of time and effort to make a story that stupendous. I had a lot of fun reading about how to keep the Earth safe.

    I save water by taking shorter showers. All the water that I save can help people in other places.

    My class celebrated Earth Day by handing out seed packets. I recieved Marigolds. Now everyone can plant something to celebrate Earth Day.

    • Dear Jack,

      Thank you for your kind words! Ooo, “stupendous” is a fabulous word choice! Taking shorter showers is a great tip. We’ll remember that. I think that handing out seed packets on Earth Day was an excellent idea! Marigolds also add so much color to a garden!

      From your teacher,
      Mrs. Moore 🙂
