Earth Day Idioms Poster

April 22 is Earth Day. Our team has worked together with our talented artist Katelin to create a free poster of Earth Idioms for you to use in your classroom. Click the image for the FREE printable PDF.

We’ve included idioms and expressions that will get your students talking about many different environmental issues, including consumerism, plastics, and overfishing. Each example relates to a ready-made lesson from our Discussion Starters section (see list below). We hope you’ll also try our ready-made Earth Day lessons.
