This resource is a fun word building activity to use for Earth Day or any time of the year. There is a single page with a word or short expression based on Earth Day. The students must use the letters from the word or short expression to find as many words as possible from those letters. You can have your students complete this alone or with a partner. Included is 3 different words/expression pages and a corresponding answer key. The words/expressions includes:
- Save Earth
- Earth Day
Here are some of the rules that you can provide to your students: no names, words must be spelled correctly, and all words have to have at least 3 letters.
Even though this is a fun activity, it's actually great for improving spelling. It's amazing how many simple words kids misspell regularly, and this activity makes them more conscious of the spellings of basic words. Plus being fully themed based around Earth Day just makes it that much better for any Earth Day themed classroom.
Quickly print out the included PDF and your students will have a blast with this Earth Day resource!
