3 ways your kids can fall in love with Earth Day this year

For Parents Apr 21, 2020

Each April, we observe the beauty of our world through Earth Day.

This year, help your child celebrate by exploring a fun nature topic. Maybe it’s:

With thousands of fun classes about Science & Nature, Outschool makes it easy to turn Earth Day into a time to spark curiosity.

After all, what’s more important than teaching kids to take care of our world?

Here are three Earth Day themes to explore with your young learner this month:

Reduce, reuse and recycle

"Lots of fun! My 5-year-old was very engaged in the story and couldn’t wait to build his own “trash” creation. Today’s building theme was “something in nature” which of course he loved. Here’s Caden and his deer!" - Outschool Parent Kyle L.

Children love learning when it’s connected to doing.

Recycling is fun because kids can learn it then do something with their knowledge.

Connect with the animal kingdom

"The teacher was so sweet and patient with the kids. My daughter had fun doing the drawings. She wished the class was longer so they could do more pictures." - Outschool Parent Marla B.

Learning about animals can take many forms. It's also a chance to help learners develop skills of communication and critical thinking.

Learn about life through biology

"Awesome class and teacher!" - Outschool parent

For the young scientist in your life, Outschool’s wide range of biology classes are the perfect fit.

When children get the chance to choose an Earth Day-themed class they love, they’ll be more likely to carry over that curiosity into the natural world.
