This fun and inspiring activity lets students color in various Captain Climate images, print off and color bookmarks, and make a cutout of their ideas to help the Earth.
The images in the activity encourage students to be kind, read books, and protect the planet.
The slides can be used as digital art or hands-on art and coloring projects.
The messages on the bookmarks and coloring pages are positive and encouraging for young learners.
Teachers will need to make a copy or print off the pages for students to work on.
You will need access to the Internet to view, download, or print the materials.
Have younger students (that are not ready to use scissors) complete the coloring pages and color in the bookmarks, then give them to the teacher to cut out.
Students who are new to writing words can draw or dictate their ideas for helping the Earth to an adult who writes the words to copy down.
Suggest students use the images provided as inspiration for their own poster, picture, or art project.
This would be a great coloring activity for fast finishers or those who like to be active during class.
These coloring pages can serve as morning work to introduce and build background knowledge for a lesson on Earth Day.
Have students display their art for the school to see in a hallway or lunchroom, or have students do a gallery walk and discuss what they like about each project.
This resource is a series of coloring and art projects that inspire students to take a proactive role in protecting the Earth. The resource features five coloring pages, a short project that tasks students with thinking about ways that they can personally help the Earth, three bookmarks, and four Captain Climate cutouts. This resource beautifully blends arts and crafts with advocacy for the health of the Earth and climate. The Captain Climate character is particularly powerful in the way that it fits into the very popular superhero archetype that children can relate to immediately. This resource is fun, educational, and is recommended for teaching.
