Earth Day

thBy now everyone has heard of Earth Day. Celebrated on April 22nd, Earth Day is a day of education and celebration about the Earth’s environment. More than a billion people worldwide celebrate it each year, and it encourages changes in human behavior that will provoke future policy changes.

Nasco has long been an advocate of the environment, and we have plenty of products to help you celebrate.

Make Earth Science fun while covering subjects like geology, astronomy, and meteorology with our Earth Science Battle SB49997M). A Nasco Exclusive, the game encourages cooperative learning while using key applications. Discover the biomes of North America with the EcoQuest® Biomes Comparison Kit (SB38148M). This game acquaints students with different geographical landscapes and environments.

Who will survive? The many factors that affect survival come to play in Nasco’s Lucky Mammal Survival Game (SB49559M). Create an animal and see if it is able to adapt to a changing environment. Or try the Investigating Amber Fossils Lab (SB39074) and uncover prehistoric insects trapped in amber.

Nasco also has fun posters to help everyone learn about the Earth and its fragile habitats. Our Habitats Learning Chart Combo Pack (SB47736M) introduces students to diverse natural habitats through these teacher-created charts. Activities are included on the back of each chart, which includes Deserts, Forests, Coral Reefs, Tundras, Grasslands, and Wetlands. The Biomes and Ecosystems Set (SB48218)  set   an in-depth look into key science topics such as Deserts, Rainforests, Forests, African Grasslands, and more.

How about some Go Green Activities to get your interest going? 5 Our Environmental Situation Cards (C29136M) present 50 common environmental issues affecting people in all parts of the world, and ask questions for the reader to consider and address, including global warming, ecology, and fossil fuels.

Earth Day can be celebrated in many different ways. Besides learning about the environment with our games and cards, you can single-handedly help the environment by planting wildflowers, flowers that attract butterflies, or grow an organic garden.
