In honor of Earth Day (week in our classroom since not everyone will attend on Thursday) I put out a little painting project. I found a great Earth template on Kidssoup (a member-only website.........click on the Earth Day link on the left sidebar..........the template is the one used for the Earth sun-catchers). You could probably find a similar template via a Google search or just freehand your own. I used the template to copy "earths" onto white cardstock. Then I set up an independent painting activity as shown below.
