Earth Day is April 22ndsave

Earth Day provides an opportunity to teach children and young adults about sustainable living, “green” choices they can make, and the importance of taking care of the planet.  

We’ve compiled some of our favorite door decorations, bulletin boards, and free printables and lesson plans to celebrate the earth and encourage critical thinking.

 Put up posters around your school and especially near trash receptacles that encourage students and staff to recycle. The "Help The Earth!" poster is one of VariQuest's Perfecta templates. 

  • Recycle & Reuse
  • Save a Tree
  • Don't Waste Water
  • Conserve Energy


We think this bulletin board, made using the VariQuest Cutout Maker, is a great addition to any classroom in the spring months. It can easily reflect an Earth Day theme or simply the season!
