Allotted Time: 7 mins
Activity Description (full & complete):
Students will be given instructions on pollutants in the environment and what we can do to
protect the Earth. Then we will show them the Earth and how clean it is, and explain why we
want to keep it that way. The floor will then be opened up for examples of how the students
feel they can heal the Earth from harmful causes. The child will come up with an answer and
you will wait until they put their hand up to be called on, then ask them how they think they
can personally make the earth a better place. The instructor will write on a Band-Aid, blind

fold the student and have them place it on the Earth, just as you would pin the tail on the
donkey.

Materials/Equipment Needed: Poster of the Earth, markers, tape, and construction paper band
aids
Questions to Check for Understanding (1-2):
Why would we want to heal the Earth?

Main Activity #1:


Objective(s) select from above: Psychomotor: Through interactive activities, the students will
be learning hand-eye coordination and learn the basics of fishing and using an extension of
their arms.
Allotted Time: 7 mins
Activity Description (full & complete):
Students will take turns at the pond and will learn the basic skills of fishing. There will be
magnets on paper fish in the pond, but there will also be pollutants in the water making it
unsafe for marine life to live. We will ask students how they think the water became so
disgusting. Next the children will take their fishing rod and try to catch a fish avoiding all of
the garbage that has been thrown into the pond. We will make sure that all students get a
chance to fish, because it is enhancing their hand eye coordination skills.

Materials/Equipment Needed: Fishing rods, magnets, garbage, construction paper, fish, box
for the pond, tape.
Questions to Check for Understanding (1-2):

Ask the students ways that the water can become polluted?

Main Activity #2:


Objective(s) select from above: Affective: Students will be able to apply knowledge learned in
todays lesson in their community to help not pollute
Allotted Time: 10 mins
Activity Description (full & complete):
After learning about pollutants, the students will have a chance to demonstrate what they
learned by throwing food/garbage at the proper target. The targets are a bear or a trash
can. We are going to ask the students what is something that they can throw away and then
throw the bean bag at the trash can and let them all have a chance to say something that they
would throw away. Next we will ask them something that they can do to help the earth and
animals and throw the bean bag at the bear. We are hoping that the students will know that
food goes to the bear and garbage goes into the trash can. This activity will be done in the
same matter as a bean bag toss with the targets not very far apart. As the other students are
watching each other put the food/garbage in the right spots, the students will sing Recycle
It. But before we start putting the food/garbage in the right spots, I will teach them the
words and have the YouTube clip playing in the background as well.

Materials/Equipment Needed: bean bag boards, bean bags, pictures, tape,

Song Lyrics: Recycle It

Recycle It!
2008 M. Orrick

Chorus
Recycle it Recycle it
If you think that you might just throw it away
Remember it can live to see another day
Recycle it Recycle it
Whatever you do don't throw it away
Make it live to see another day
Verse
Maybe it's a plastic bag
Maybe it's the Sunday Paper
Maybe it's the bottle that you drank your soda from
Or the wrapper on a stick of gum
Maybe it's a soup can
Maybe it's a jar of strawberry jam
Or the big container that holds your juice
It all can be put to another use
(Chorus)
