Six activities are included in April 2010 Activities of the Month. A description of each activity is listed below. Boardmaker Plus is needed for the interactive lessons. New April Symbols are available for: ecology, litter bug, recycle, reduce, reuse, wildlife.


Earth Day Vocabulary
   12 picture/vocabulary words are introduced on this talking board. Students can explore the vocabulary related to the Earth Day Book prior to beginning the activity. This talking board can be used to answer questions in off-computer activities related to Earth Day. This page can also be printed for off-computer activities. (Idea to reinforce vocabulary – have the student find the picture on the computer when you point to it on the paper sheet).

Earth Day Book
   This simple electronic was created with the TALKING BOOK TEMPLATE from the Adapted Learning Site. The book consists of 18 page layouts with simple text and graphics. If you would like to narrate the text included in the book, follow the instructions included in the Talking Book Template from the Adapted Learning Site (see link above).

Earth Day Reading Page
    This reading page will summarize the theme of the lessons. The reading page can read the text on the computer or can be printed for an off-computer activity. This is an excellent way for students to share conversation about their computer activities at home.

True/False Questions
   This interactive activity allows the student to answer ten questions related to Earth Day. Students will hear the question and then select the true or false buttons. This activity was created with the TRUE/FALSE TEMPLATE from the Adapted Learning Site
