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!
This resource works well these Simply Kinder resources:

Another great song that provides specific examples of ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle items we use every day to keep our Earth clean.
Recycling Song The Three R’s by Jack Hartmann (2:39)
The students can follow this recycle song very easily because of the simple words and messages. The song sings about specific materials to recycle – paper, cardboard, glass, plastic bottles, aluminum cans, newspapers and magazines.
Earth is Our Home by Mother Goose Club (3:00)
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.

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!
