On April 22, 1970, the first Earth Day inspired millions of people from all walks of life to come together to protect and celebrate our Earth. This April—53 years later—Earth Day still stands as one of the most widely observed secular holidays across the planet.
To celebrate Earth Day, we’re focusing our attention on issues like climate change, green technology, and environmental justice, which are all critical for maintaining healthy, sustainable life on Earth. Even though we should aim to examine, discuss, and advance these topics year-round, we’re still excited to celebrate Earth Day 2023 this week with the global community.
With that goal in mind, we’ve curated a collection of free LabXchange resources (below) to supplement the Earth Day lesson plans or school projects that you may be working on this week. We hope you find them useful!
