    Gaylord Nelson founded Earth Day in 1970. In the same year, Denis Hayes coordinated the first Earth Day in the United States. As a result of Earth Day, many environmental laws were passed and the Environmental Protection Agency was created.
     
    In honor of Earth Day, use the following resources to research pollution (air, water, land) and write a letter to the editor of a newspaper persuading people to reduce, reuse, and recycle.
     
    Next, create a PowerPoint documenting your findings about pollution.
