Earth Day 2008

Earth Day 2008 falls on Tuesday, April 22: It’s a special day to learn about our planet and how to take care of it. In honor of this I hope to post an article each day leading up to the 22nd with Activities to do around Earth day that will not only teach kids about conservation and recycling but help them to appreciate the world around them. (Kids are filled with wonder and I tend to think that in spending some time with them in the outdoors makes the me appreciate the world we live in more)

For my 1st Earth Day post I will cover a little bit about Earth Day: Earth Day was founded by Mr. John McConnell on March 21, 1970. He writes, “When the Vernal Equinox dawned on me, I immediately knew it was right. The Earth tremor that shook our California dwelling at that moment seemed an omen of confirmation. What could be more appropriate than the first moment of spring, when day and night are equal around the world and hearts and minds can join together with thoughts of harmony and Earth's rejuvenation. Just as a single prayer can be significant, how much more so when hundreds, thousands, millions of people throughout the world join in peaceful thoughts and prayers to nurture neighbor and nature. And so it came to pass we initiated the celebration of Earth Day on March 21, 1970.” Since then People all over the country made promises to help the environment. Everyone got involved and since then, Earth Day has spread all over the planet. People all over the world know that there are problems we need to work on and this is our special day to look at the planet and see what needs changing. Isn't it great? One person had an idea and kept working until everyone began working together to solve it. See what happens when people care about our world?
