Earth Day



Climate disruption is an urgent issue – especially for young people. 

How can we help students learn about climate change and what we can do about it? How can we encourage hope and determination rather than resignation and despair? 

Our 2019 Earth Day Lesson Collection can help!  The guide contains 19 interactive lesson plans on climate change and related issues for K-12 classrooms from our TeachableMoment online teacher resource center.

Using strategies ranging from reading and discussion to analyzing photos and tweets, videos, and hands-on activities, these lessons engage students in learning about and exploring climate change and other environmental issues. Some lessons focus on the inspiring organizing young people are doing to address climate change - from lawsuits to advocating for a Green New Deal. Others emphasize the social and emotional skills that we believe are survival strategies in the age of climate disruption, including empathy, kindness, cultural awareness, critical thinking, problem-solving, team-building, and cooperation.
