Earth Day was founded in 1970 as a day of education about environmental issues. Earth Day 2021 will occur on Thursday, April 22, the holiday’s 51st anniversary. This holiday is now a global celebration that’s sometimes extended into Earth Week, a full seven days of events focused on green living.
Earth Day was the brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson and inspired by the protests of the 1960s. It began as a national teach-in about our environment. April 22 was chosen as the official annual day to maximize the number of students that could be reached on campuses. By raising public awareness of pollution, Nelson hoped to bring environmental causes into the national spotlight.
Earth Day is now recognized worldwide to celebrate the importance of taking care of our planet. If you would like more ideas for how to commemorate this day in your classroom, or at home, check out this recommended resources page full of earth day activities, lessons, and quizzes for kids.
