It’s almost Earth Day and the Khan Academy Kids crew is eager to explore the great outdoors. Together, let’s enjoy a new season of learning with three Earth Day activities to do with your young learners. Start with Earth Day fun on Circle Time, then read from a huge selection of nature books in our app’s Library, and finish with a scavenger hunt outside!
Watch our Earth Day playlist
Watch and learn about the environment while discovering the beauty of animals in nature with this fun-filled Earth Day playlist from Khan Academy Kids. Tune into stories about recycling, ladybugs, tree frogs, and more!
Read Khan Kids books about nature
Head to the Library in our app to browse dozens of books about animals and nature. We have cute character books starring Kodi and friends, nonfiction books about backyard wildlife, and National Geographic books about wetlands, wildflowers, and weather. Earth Day storytime will be so much fun!
Go on a nature walk scavenger hunt
Take what you’ve learned and venture outside to observe some discoveries. Print our “Nature Walk Scavenger Hunt” sheet and have kids check off what they see during a walk or hike. For an extra challenge, write the name of each object in the box, or turn the page over and make a list of new nature discoveries to add to the collection. This is a great way to make Earth Day an active day of learning!
These videos, books, and discoveries will provide fun-filled Earth Day activities for kids and families. We can’t wait for you to try Khan Academy Kids, our free app for children ages 2-8. If you have any questions for the Khan Kids team, we’re here to help! Just send an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to hear from you. Happy spring!
