Although you can do as many or as few as you want we have a suggested schedule below taking one activity per day as a focus and mixing in reading time as well. The schedule can be seen below - this is only an idea that has worked for one of our team.

Earth Week Activities for Preschoolers Featuring The Earth Book
Easy, simple and fun activities themed around The Earth and Earth Day featuring the book The Earth Book by Todd Parr for Preschoolers
Colored Rice Earth Day Sensory Bin
We loved this Earth Day Sensory bin as not only is the bin filling a natural material (rice) but all of the extras are natural too.
For a week where we are thinking of the environment, this is ideal.
Simple Preschool Earth Day Sensory Bin and Literacy Play
Using the same sensory bin and adding in some letters you can create this simple Earth Day alphabet or word sensory activity for your preschooler.
Change on the words for just letters, work on spelling names or those sight words.
If you have them you could use Wooden Letters instead of plastic focusing again on caring for the planet.
Earth Day Centers and Activities (FREE Earth Day Vocab Posters)
This week’s math activity is focusing on pattern making. With these really simple Earth Dat Pattern Making Activity.
Scroll down the ideas on the post to find out how simple this is to do with your preschooler. Start by working on a 1, 1 pattern and then increase the complexity and get the following along.
