How to make a mini notebook with our I can help the Earth by worksheet
Download and print the I can help the Earth by printable pdf. It comes with step-by-step instructions and the Earth day worksheet. You can print out the template on white A4 construction paper.
Let the kids cut out all the parts of the template. Use the big plain circle template to cut out 6 circles from different colored papers.
Hold all of those 6 circles together and staple two pins near to an edge. You will get a mini-book with 6 leaves. The first and last leaves will become the cover of the book.
Stick the Earth template with the wording-‘I can help the Earth by” on the top cover of your book. Now you can talk to the kids about each topic in the rest of the circles. There are 8 circles with simple graphics covering these points: turning off lights, saving water, recycling, being kind to animals, walking when you can, planting seeds, watering plants, and using both sides of a paper.
If there is a group of kids, you can ask each of them to choose a circle with an activity they want to do to save the Earth. This will also give them a sense of responsibility.
Stick each small circle in the mini-book starting from the second leaf. Don’t forget to use both sides of the paper to stick the circles.
Finish sticking all the 8 circles in the mini-book and the kids are ready to display their project for Earth Day!
