American Experience: Earth Days

The forty-second anniversary of Earth Day will be on Sunday, April 22. Prepare for the day by watching this hour-long movie from PBS’ American Experience. There are interviews with scientists, historians, sociologists, and everyday people and many activities included in the teacher’s guide that accompanies the movie. Five lessons that cover between two and four class periods, for students from 5th through 12th grade, look at this movie and the pressing topic of protecting the earth from the standpoint of Civics, History, Visual Arts, Science, Technology, and Language Arts.
