San Diego, CA, April 10, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Teachers.Net has taken the work out of searching for Earth Day lesson plans and activities by gathering the best of its best in the April issue of the Teachers.Net Gazette. http://teachers.net/gazette/APR08
Teachers and school administrators looking for creative, meaningful and easy to implement activities to make Earth Day 2008 educational and enjoyable for their preschool, kindergarten, elementary and upper grade students will find a plethora of ideas in the Featured Lessons and Resources section of the current Teachers.Net Gazette.
From a list of primary grade books and corresponding activities, to rainforest theme activities, to an earth measuring activity and instructions for making paper in the classroom, educators will find enough to fill a lesson plan book with cross-curricular activities incorporating math, science, art, reading, games, skits, poems, and songs.
In addition to Earth Day lesson plans, educators will find transcripts of idea-gathering chats where teachers proudly shared their most successful Earth Day and ecology classroom activities. Transcript titles include Earth Day Activities; Going Buggy! An Insect Theme Activities; April Theme Activities; Earth/Eco Books Annotated List; recycling Activities; Teaching Map Skills, and more.
In addition to the many Earth Day and ecology project resources gathered in the Teachers.Net Gazette, Teachers.Net offers two forums where teachers can tap into the network of peer support:
1. Teachers.Net Earth Day/Eco Chatboard
2. Teachers.Net Earth Day Mailring
The Teachers.Net Gazette debuted in March 2000. The current issue and all Gazette back issues are available at http://teachers.net/gazette/
