Every Day is Earth Day

Earth Day doesn’t have to be just one day every April. It can be any day of the year. Here are some activities you can do anytime, anywhere to take care of the earth and show your gratitude for  all of nature’s beauty.

Find out where the garbage goes.

Take a trip to your local  landfill or waste disposal facility. We learned a lot about what happens to all of the things we throw away and recycle, it was free, and we got to ride on a cool bus (big points with us homeschoolers). There’s a lot of science learning to be found at the garbage dump:  gas, garbage juice, decomposition and much more.

Have a trash clean-up day. Pick a favorite spot close to home: a park, a wooded area, a sports field, and fill up a garbage bag or two or three.
