Earth Day Color by Code Freebie

Happy Belated "Earth Day"!

We often talk about the importance of taking care of our planet because it is beneficial to ourselves as well as future generations.  One thing we shouldn't neglect to emphasize with our students is that it's not just about us!  Human beings are not the only ones that inhabit the Earth.  We're the caretakers of the planet.  We're Earth's "custodians"!  The environmental choices we make impact all living things on Earth.

I made a Color by Code freebie in honor of "Earth Day".  Use it as a review for your unit on animals.  Mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and insects are the six animal groups included.  Children read the animal names on the sheet such as the word "swan".  Then they determine the animal group and color according to the key at the top of the page.  Click the link to get the freebieEarth Day.

Earth Day is on April 22nd!  Celebrate the event with your students with this free "Color by Code" printable.  There are five animal groups that are classified as vertebrates.  They include mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and birds.  There is one group of animals classified as invertebrates which are insects.  Students read the animal names in each section of the color by code page and determine the animal's classification.  They then color according to the key provided on the printable.

"Earth Day" is on April 22nd but every day is a perfect day to be a good steward of the planet we all call home!
