Endangered Animals Earth Day Activities, Day 2

It's almost Earth Day!!!! Earth Day is April 22 every year, and it is probably my favorite celebration in the library! No matter their age, students really get into Earth Day activities and concepts like plastic pollution, water conservation, planting trees, and endangered animals. I love that they get so passionate about the state of our earth and what we can do to help keep it beautiful and healthy.

Today is Day Two of my three-day blog mini-series of Earth Day Activities. Yesterday, I shared ideas for middle school library lessons about endangered animals. Today's ideas focus on great picture book lessons about endangered animals. Tomorrow, I will focus on novels about endangered animals. I either have taught or would teach these lessons with students in Grades 2-7. I think they could also be adapted for younger students as well.

I hope you enjoy the ideas! If you have other ideas for endangered animal picture books for Earth Day, please share your ideas in the comments section! Please hang on to your ideas for novels...I will post novel read-alouds next.
