Do you celebrate Earth Day with your students? If you do, and are looking for a fun, easy, FREE Earth Day project, you are in the right place!
These marble painted “earths in space” were a huge hit with my kindergarteners! After all, who doesn’t love marble painting?
To begin, you need white, blue, and green paint. You also need a tray of some sort to hold the paper and marbles in for the students to roll and shake. Copy paper lids work great!
Place the circle template (included at the end of this post) FACE DOWN in the tray. This ensures that the students can see the circle to cut out once it dries. If you paint on top of the circle – they can’t see it (I did that for the first one on accident!)
I also recommend taping down the paper to the tray so that it doesn’t slip around or lift up.
Take the paper out of the tray and let it dry. By the next day the students can easily cut out the circle (remember it is on the other side!).
Glue the “earth” on size 12×18 black construction paper near the top.
Have students complete the writing page “I can help the earth by:”
I chose to glue that down on half sheets of green for an extra bit of color – but you don’t have to.
