Earth Day is coming up soon, so it’s a good time to plan some activities that will be engaging and get the kids excited to learn more about this global holiday!
Incorporate learning and fun this holiday with our Earth Day Worksheets. When kids complete these sheets, they’ll practice writing the letter E for Earth, complete patterns of different ways to help the planet, and make their way through a letter maze.
Be sure to check out some more Earth Day activities the kids will love to do this April.
Earth Day Printables
These Earth Day-themed activities are a great way for kids to build on their beginning literacy and fine motor skills. These pages also give kids a chance to practice handwriting, cutting with scissors, identifying patterns, and letter recognition.
These worksheets are a perfect addition to your Earth Day lessons. They’ll help get kids talking about different ways they can conserve resources while working on important skills.
To get started, just download these free printables, grab the scissors, glue, and a pencil.
In this free set of Earth Day worksheets, you’ll receive the following pages:
- E is for Earth handwriting page
- Earth Day patterns worksheet
- E letter maze worksheet
Up first on the handwriting practice sheet, kids will learn that E is for Earth! They’ll practice spelling out the word “earth” and uppercase and lowercase Ee’s with the help of the dashed lines.
When they trace the shape of the letters over and over, it helps them master how to correctly form each letter. It also allows for them to hone their fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination.
On the Earth Day patterns worksheet, kids will cut and paste the squares at the bottom of the page into the correct space to finish out each pattern.
As they use reasoning skills and understand what comes next, they’ll build pattern recognition. When kids understand patterns, they are able to make predictions, plan, and make logical connections.
This pattern page is filled with illustrations of kids helping out their environment. When your children complete this page, take the chance to discuss different ways they can help, too.
Finally, kids will make their way through the letter maze by identifying all of the uppercase and lowercase Ee’s. This page is a great way to reinforce letter recognition as they find the correct letters to get them to the finish line.
They’ll also work on problem-solving and sharpening their focus when they navigate their way through the maze.
