Today is World Environment day.
The foods we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the climate that makes our planet habitable all come from nature.
Yet, these are exceptional times in which nature is sending us a message:
To care for ourselves we must care for nature.
It’s time to wake up. To take notice. To raise our voices.
It’s time to build back better for People and Planet.
This World Environment Day, it’s Time for Nature.
Follow the link below to find more information about the day. There are lots of things you can do to keep animals safe and help the environment. We have thought of lots of activities you might want today as your challenge. You might want to pick one or do a few.
- What is your favourite thing about nature? Can you tell us why it is your favourite thing and what we can do to preserve it?
- Life Hack! Can you think of a way to recycle or reuse something in a way that might help the environment? Is it a life hack? Have a go. Create your own YouTube style video to share what you have recycled/reused. Maybe have a look at some recycling life hack videos first to see what you could make or do.
- Design your own Nature Scavenger Hunt for a family member to complete. What might you add to it? Birds chirping, a smooth rock, a spiky bush, an animal habitat etc.
- Could you make a shoe box habitat for a small animal? Don’t forget to do a little bit of research to see what a small animal would need inside their home.
- Phonics challenge – Can you be a detective and hunt around your house for the following graphemes – oa, a_e, ng, ee, ck, i_e, er, ea, sh, or? Let’s get creative! Using recycling, empty packaging or old magazines, can you find words to match the categories. Check out the picture below for an example.
- Spelling detectives. Can you complete the task above using a spelling rule you have learned in your year group? Could you use a specific prefix or suffix? Could you find homophones or near homophones? Have a go! We can’t wait to see what you find!
Don’t forget to email your teacher and share what you have done. We can’t wait to see your World Environment Day work!
