Our mission at Maggie’s Earth Adventures is to honor the Earth every Day , enlisting the help of our Maggie Partners in encouraging our students to act and live sustainably in their everyday walk of life.  So much has changed since we launched www.missmaggie.org over 10 years ago, but our mission remains the same and our teachers, continue to be our most vital ambassadors in spreading the word about our free program.  As we prepare to celebrate Earth Day on April 22, please make an extra effort this week to share www.missmaggie.org with friends, colleagues and parents so they too can help prepare in advance for Earth Day 2011.

When I stumbled upon this topic, it immediately planted the seed for this week’s WAP and I have been over the moon about this project ever since.  We know you and your students will be intrigued as well:

  • “Wanted Moon Trees.  Where are those Space Travelers Now” available at the primary and intermediate levels.
  • Content on Colonel Roosa’s trip to the moon with seeds from earth
  • Follow up critical thinking activities
  • Available in Spanish

In the Dear Colleague letter

  • Background on the activity
  • Who to contact if YOU see a Moon tree
  • Math, science, geography extension activities
  • Correlates with Content Standard D, Earth and Space Science, of the National Science Standards.
