Make Everyday Earth Day!
April marks Earth Month with Earth Day formally taking place on Friday 25 April 2022. This year's theme is 'Invest In Our Planet' and is focussed on finding solutions to combat the threat of climate change.
The Dirt Is Good Schools Programme is one way to encourage young people to take collective action on the climate crisis. There are a number of resources and materials available to support changemakers thinking about Our Earth and what they can do to help it - for every day and not just Earth Day.
For example, you could ask your students:
How can your changemakers showcase their action? They could:
- What do you love about Our Earth?
- What action have you or could you take for Earth Month?
- Create a poster
- Write a blog post
- Create a short video

STEM Learning are also offering interactive games and resources for students and teachers to access online, from animations about The Greenhouse Effect, to an exercise examining changes to rainforests, and the option to play a Decarbonisation Game.
