In 1969 at a UNESCO Conference in San Francisco, peace activist John McConnell proposed a day to honor the Earth and the concept of peace, to first be observed on March 21, 1970, the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere. This day of nature's equipoise was later sanctioned in a proclamation written by McConnell and signed by Secretary General U Thant at the United Nations. A month later a United States Senator Gaylord Nelson proposed the idea to hold a nationwide environmental teach-in on April 22, 1970. He hired a young activist, Denis Hayes, to be the National Coordinator. Nelson and Hayes renamed the event "Earth Day". Denis and his staff grew the event beyond the original idea for a teach-in to include the entire United States. More than 20 million people poured out on the streets, and the first Earth Day remains the largest single day protest in human history. Key non-environmentally focused partners played major roles. Under the leadership of labor leader Walter Reuther, for example, the United Auto Workers was the most instrumental outside financial and operational supporter of the first Earth Day.[3][4][5] According to Hayes, "Without the UAW, the first Earth Day would have likely flopped!"[6] Nelson was later awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedomaward in recognition of his work.[7] MORE FROM THE EARTH DAY WIKIPEDIA ENTRY

Thank you, Earth for so many adventures

I love going to new places and seeing new things and meeting new people. Just this last weekend I went on a very short adventure and met a whole bunch of new people. Even though I’m definitely an introvert and needed a lot of recovery time - it was a blast.

Welcome To Earth - Stream & Color - Disney+ Docuseries Free Coloring Pages

Welcome to Earth

Have you seen this docuseries on Disney+? I just watched it and loved it. There are six episodes and I thought it would be a fun one to use as a class activity for those of you who have classrooms. My 11 yo enjoyed some of the episodes with me.

I’m thinking late elementary and middle school kids would be the best ages for this series.

I made a page for each episode with some related little drawings to color while you watch (for those of you who hear “color and watch” and your brain explodes a little, please keep an open mind because the neurodivergent among your students might love this option and it might help them pay attention!)

Each page has a related question you can use as a discussion question :D

Some fun facts about the Painted Lady:

1. The painted lady isn't picky.

Unlike many butterflies that have certain host plants that they lay eggs on and that caterpillars eat --- the monarch butterfly host plant is milkweed --- the painted lady has been noted to have more than 100 host plants. Caterpillars will eat thistles, hollyhocks and legumes. It is sometimes called the thistle butterfly because it likes thistles.

As an adult, the butterflies enjoy nectar from many different flowers too --- thistles, asters, blazing star, ironweed, Joe pye weed and more.

2. They're found around the world.

Painted lady butterflies aren't limited to the U.S. or even North America. In fact, they are found on all continents except Australia and Antarctica. It is the most widely-distributed butterfly in the world.

3. Painted ladies are tougher than their name sounds.

Painted ladies migrate seasonally and can fly up to 100 miles per day at nearly 30 miles per hour. They don't stay in cold regions during the winter, but you might see them later in the season than monarchs because painted ladies can migrate so quickly.

4. They live in silk houses.

Some caterpillars like to stay covered as a protection. For instance, red admiral caterpillars live in the shelter of folded leaves. Painted ladies weave a tent-like structure from silk, and you can often see these fluffy shelter on thistles. THESE ARE FROM Dickins County Conservation Board READ MORE FACTS HERE

They're all around us, in the soil, our bodies and the air, but are often too small to be seen with the naked eye.

They provide medicines and food but also wreak havoc by causing plant and animal diseases.

According to the first big assessment of the state of the world's fungi, the fungal kingdom is vital to life on Earth. 

Yet, more than 90% of the estimated 3.8 million fungi in the world are currently unknown to science. 

"It's such an interesting set of organisms and we really know so little about them," says Prof Kathy Willis, director of science at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, which led the report. 

"They're really weird organisms with the most bizarre life cycle. And yet when you understand their role in the Earth's ecosystem, you realise that they underpin life on Earth." READ MORE ABOUT FUNGI
