Every year on April 22nd, Earth Day is celebrated around the world to show support for environmental protection.
Earth Day was founded in 1970 as a day of education about environmental issues. The theme for Earth Day 2020 is climate action. The enormous challenge — but also the vast opportunities — of action on climate change have distinguished the issue as the most pressing topic for the 50th anniversary.
One way ARVAC is celebrating this year is by sharing videos of some of our teachers reading books about the Earth.
Listen to one of our teachers reading This Is Our Earth by Laura Benson.
Listen to Ms. Marissa as she reads a book about recycling.
Ms. Wynona reads In My Backyard by Don L. Curry in honor of Earth Day.
Ms. Sarah reads Don't Lose It, Reuse It by Nancy Noel Williams.
