Earth Day Videos for Kids
Earth Day is coming soon and so we wanted to give you a teacher approved list of Earth Day Videos for kids. Several of these videos tie in perfectly with all of the Spring themed lessons we are all teaching, life cycles, insects, and flowers. The vocabulary is easy to understand and the presentation is engaging and appropriate for our early learners!

In this video Peppa and George learn that some “rubbish” can be recycled. They recycle cans, newspapers, and bottles from their morning breakfast and then take them to the recycling center near their home.

This song discusses all of the beautiful things and habitats that are apart of our Earth. This song would be a great song to discuss inferencing. This song offers a lot of clues as to why we should take good care of our “home” but it does not actually state it in the song.

This short video teaches the importance of recycling. It includes a song that will help your students why it is importance we recycle and the basic process of recycling.
The Earth Song by Nick Kello (4:59)
This songs lyrics teaches about keeping the earth clean so we can all live our lives to the fullest. The song is accompanied by breathtaking, real life pictures from all over the world. I think this video would be good for a calming brain break and/or at the end of a day filled with Earth Day lessons.

This video talks about the #1 principle of life: respecting all life. It talks about how no matter how different living things all are all living things are important and deserve respect. It is our duty to care for one another.

This video is LOADED with ways to make better choices for the planet. This is a great video for talking about recycling, reusing, and conserving!
Earth Day Recycling Song Lyrics for Preschool by Kiboomers (1:17)
I just love these videos because the lyrics are slower and simple so you can easily turn them into a poem your students can recite. This one is great for recycling and talking about the processes of how kids do it!
