Earth Day – Crosswords

25 no-prep Crossword Puzzles for Earth Day – April 22

Celebrate Earth Day on April 22 with some worksheets, puzzles and activities. 

For our Earth Day activities, I wanted to give you the opportunity to introduce some important environmental topics and discussions into your classroom. So apart from some of the typical enviro terms, you’ll find microplastics, packaging, restore, reduce, single use, solar, and hopefully a few other great ideas to spark your class. 

See Keywords (below) or try the Earth Day Free Sample Pack for more info.

RBS mini-Topics feature activities and worksheets with the main difference being they don’t include Clues or Definitions – just Keywords & Terms. So no Standard Crosswords etc. mini-Topics are great for topics when clues and definitions might just get in the way of some fun (eg: Pizza toppings, Easter, April Fools etc.).

Crossword Puzzles are a fun, quick, formative assessment tool, to help monitor progress of what the student has learnt and can recall from the topic content and glossary terms and definitions. (Bloom: Knowledge, Recall). 

Crosswords are also a terrific “Do Now” activity at the start of a lesson or a great time filler at the end for early finishers.
