The American Chemical Society is celebrating Earth Day with Chemists Celebrate Earth Week (CCEW). The theme this year is “Protecting Our Planet Through Chemistry”

In celebration of CCEW, The Southern California Section of the American Chemical Society would like to inform you that we are hosting a digital Illustrated Poem Contest (bit.ly/CCEWpoems). It could be a fun activity for grades K-12 especially during this CoVid19 crisis when students are out of school. Please share attached flyer. The deadline to enter is May 3, 2020.

Also we wanted to share digital educational resources with you to help you celebrate Earth week. Check out the following content on the ACS CCEW webpage.:

• Celebrating Chemistry Coloring Book (grades K-2)
• Endangered Elements Color by Numbers (PDF) (grades 3-6)
• ChemCatcher (PDF) (grades 9-12, undergraduate)
• Earth Day 50th Anniversary Timeline (PDF) (grades 9-12, undergraduate) and more educational resources organized by age group

ACS also has the current edition of Celebrating Chemistry for CCEW 2020 “Protecting Our Planet through Chemistry” available at this webpage: https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/education/outreach/celebrating-chemistry-editions.html

This magazine has interesting articles and activities that can be done at home for ages 9-12 (Grades 4-6).

We hope this helps you celebrate Earth Day/Week virtually.
