Earth Day

April 22, 2023

Invest in our planet.


About Earth Day

Earth Day takes place every April 22 and this year's theme is "Invest in Our Planet".  It's going to take everyone - businesses, governments, schools, communities - to take action on climate change. 

Through some fun engaging activities, we'll explore how we can help students embrace their sense of responsibility for the planet and its people.

To celebrate the amazing things we can accomplish when we work together, we developed Earth Day resources that engage students in investing in our planet by planning and executing simple campaigns and that doing small actions can make a big difference.

Our Earth Day activities provide a link to the core competencies of the curriculum. The activities engage students in sharing ideas and solutions, having fun learning and sharing with others through creative thinking and making. Each activity is also available with English and French student materials.

Relevant core competencies:

  • Communications and collaboration 
  • Thinking
  • Social awareness and responsibility

The activities also connect to a variety of grade-specific curricular competencies and content in a variety of subjects including Physical and Health Education, English Language Arts, Science, and Social Studies.

Available activities

Available until April 22, 2023.
