I’m getting ready to start a poetry unit with my students, so I decided to share one of the poems I wrote for them last year.

Earth Day Tips

Recycle your items; paper, cans and glass,
Go sparingly, when you water the green grass.
Turn off your lights when not in use,
Cut back on waste, try to reduce.
Change all your faucets to low flow,
Take your shower quickly not slow.
When grocery shopping skip paper or plastic,
Get a reusable bag or small hand basket.
For fresh clean air plant some young trees,
And new flowers for honey bees.
Save gas and ride your bike in town,
And pick up litter from the ground.
Remember on earth, we’re not alone.
