Stewardship - Earth Day (Month) Activities or Lessons

Our stewarship committee is undertaking a big focus on stewardship of the earth in April and would like the church school to tie in to this. I am looking for either lessons or activites for kids ages 3 - high school (of course not the same lesson for the whole age range!)

Moderator move below post here, from elsewhere on the site, to consolidate topic.
