Montessori Earth Day Activities

Share Wildflower Ramblings!

Bringing our children into nature and telling them why we love and care for our beautiful Earth is one of the most important thing we can do as teachers and educators.  I have collected our Favorite Montessori Earth Day activities to inspire you today on Earth Day, but also to emphasize that any day can be Earth Day!  Any day we can bring our children outdoors to explore nature, dirt, little critters, how to recycle — and in this whole process they are learning!  They are learning important skills to foster independence as well as language, mathematics, practical life and fine motor skills, and exploring different sensory experiences.

  1. What an amazing collection! We have a bunch of OJ and milk cartons left over from making an igloo this winter, so the seed starters look great!
