April 22- is Earth Day!
Sesame Street's Environmentally-Friendly DVD Being Green has arrived, just in time for Earth Day!
In Being Green, Hollywood star Paul Rudd plays Mr. Earth, who teaches Elmo and Abby Cadabby how to be environmentally conscious by recycling, re-using, and conserving water and energy. In her desire to help Elmo to be more "green," Abby accidentally turns Elmo the color GREEN and can't remember how to change him back! Lots of fun ensues as Abby is eventually able to poof Elmo red again and Cookie Monster, Rosita, and Telly Monster pitch in, pledging to be eco-friendly because Earth Rocks!
Check out a preview of Being Green here!
As a special bonus feature, Being Green also contains 16 pages of downloadable activities and story sheets to extend the learning at home.
Also, check out the Going Green segments on the Homework Hotline Video Player! Click on "Science" at the top of the page, then click on "Environment" on the drop down tab.
We hope that you enjoy these Earth Day resources!
