Climate Education Week

Abstract: Earth Day Network presents Climate Education Week, April 18-25th. Climate Education Week will provide standards-based, state-of-the-art climate education to over 100,000 K-12 schools across the United States under the banner of our 2015 Earth Day theme, "It's Our Turn to Lead." To carry out Climate Education Week, EDN is developing an online toolkit that provides teachers with everything they will need to deliver lessons and activities related to climate science. It will include lesson plans for specific grade levels that meet both NGSS and CCS. The toolkit will be cross-disciplinary, with activities ranging from scientific investigations of renewable energy to a lesson plan simulating policy recommendations to the UN. Earth Day service learning projects will also be provided to inspire educators and their students to take action on April 22nd.
