With Earth Day approaching, PBS Kids® would like to share some useful tips, articles, fun activities and more on how parents can start to instill a love of the environment and eco-conscious values in their children and families.
The “Share the Earth” Campaign
On Wednesday, April 22, The “Share the Earth” campaign will feature free online content and programming. Log on or tune in to watch some fun and educational “earth-friendly” episodes starring your children’s favorite characters including, Curious George, Arthur, Sid the Science Kid and more.
I’ve got the “dirt” on some of the fun events that will be taking place –
- recycling Tips from none other than Mister Rogers!
- “How to Grow Green Kids” – a green-themed article being featured on pbsparents.org on how to raise environmentally-conscious children! –
- an exclusive, expert Q&A featuring kid-friendly “green tips” on pbsparents.org
- a must-watch Earth Day channel on the PBS Kids GO! online video player, featuring Arthur, Design Squad, Meet the Greens and Maya & Miguel.
- and more…
“Whether it’s the importance of dirt on SID THE SCIENCE KID, water conservation on SUPER WHY!, planting a garden on MAYA & MIGUEL or the effects of pollution on CYBERCHASE, no seed of knowledge is left unsown. The on-air event also will feature a music video from the award-winning kids’ rock band Milkshake, as well as Earth-friendly tips from PBS KIDS hosts Mr. Steve, Miss Rosa and Miss Lori.”
