Earth Day is Born In 1969 John McConnell promoted Earth Day as a global celebration of Earth s gifts. The equinox seemed fitting time as it was the mid-point of spring and autumn across the hemispheres. A peace activist McConnell first presented his Earth Day idea to an audience at the UNESCO Conference on the Environment. He wanted Earth Day to be a global holiday where the world celebrates Earth s wonders and gifts. On March 21 1970 cities across the globe celebrated Earth Day. McConnell created an Earth Day proclamation that called upon people to take action against crises of the world such as famine war and poverty.
Tin cans paper shreddings crayon shavings and other recycled or recyclable materials can be used to depict a scene or a drawing that shows something to do with Earth Day can be equally stimulating. You may also wish to gather a classroom full of children and create a mural with each child participating by adding to a large picture that shows what Earth Day means to them or what they can do to help protect and preserve the earth. The mural can hang on one wall of the classroom for several weeks to remind the children of the importance of Earth Day and what it represents.
