After finishing their books, your students can share their ideas with the rest of the class.

How Can I Differentiate This Activity?

If your kids can’t write sentences yet, they can dictate to you what they want to say. They can then draw the pictures to go along with the sentences.

You can also use the word cards from the Earth Day Activities bundle to encourage your young writers to practice writing a few Earth Day words.
