When schools closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, EarthGen began creating environmental learning resources that teachers and parents can use for at-home learning. Check back for updates and new resources for all grade levels, in English and Spanish.
Elementary School Resources
In EarthGen’s Garden Explorations activity, K-5 students can practice math and writing skills while learning more about gardens and how plants grow.
Nature Scavenger Hunt
This activity connects elementary school students with nature and reinforces Washington’s science learning standards. In EarthGen’s Nature Scavenger Hunt, students make observations of nature while getting fresh air in the neighborhood.
This activity is suitable for students in grades 3 through 6 and curious learners of all ages. In EarthGen’s Waste Adventures, students practice math and writing skills while learning more about where their waste goes after it leaves their home.
Virtual Race to Decomposition
What makes an apple core decompose? To find out, join EarthGen’s “Race to Decomposition” – a simple investigation using everyday materials from home. Race against time through weekly virtual lessons that explore factors affecting decomposition.
