Earth Day Trivia Quiz

Go, Earth Day! It's your birthday! Ok so it’s not really the Earth’s birthday, but Earth Day is April 22nd. And as we can see from our Save the Planet Message Board you guys are really passionate about the environment. Whether it’s telling us about ways you conserve, giving tips on how to have an eco-party, pack an earth-friendly lunch, or getting your whole school class to join the Save the Planet Message Board (shout out to YOU jolly green!) — we see how much the Earth is important to you. So let’s get ready for the official party for the planet, and kick off this week’s Trivia Tuesday.

  1. In what year was the first Earth Day held? 
  2. Who is credited as the founder of Earth Day?
  3. What was the name of the movie former Vice-President Al Gore made warning about global warming?
  4. Name 3 things you can do to help the environment. (So many to choose from!)
  5. Should you pick wild plants or flowers?
  6. Name 3 types of material you can recycle.
  7. What does E.P.A. stand for?
  8. Which room in your house uses the most water? (kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room)

Check your answers here.

Here are some other things you can do to celebrate Earth Day.

I plan to wear green, and maybe even throw on some green nail polish and eye shadow. Plus I resolve to refill my water bottle, not eat any packaged things all day, and try to pick up garbage I might see in my neighborhood.

    Earth Day started when there was an oil spill in like 1969. The Senator Gaylord Nelson started Earth Day because of that!
