Engaging Students in Climate Science Learning

Posted by EiE Team on Wednesday, April 19, 2023

Whether you’re celebrating Earth Day or Environmental Education Week or just trying to find new ways to get students interested in learning about climate science and climate change, EiE has the resources you need. Engaging lessons are key to building real-world connections and developing concrete understanding to build on for years to come. You can engage your students in climate learning and get them thinking about solutions by:

Getting hands-on. With topics like climate change and climate science, which can often feel abstract for young learners, try breaking down an example small enough to wrap your hands around. Learners of all ages can scale up (or down) an activity based on cleaning up a polluted river, like in Tehya’s Pollution Solution.

Check out other environmentally-themed units from EiE here.

Trying new technology. With climate science evolving rapidly, keep up with the latest with digital educational resources like EiE x Pear Deck’s climate change overview, which offers web-based applications based on the latest science. Students can explore how our actions affect the environment, and how we can leverage this knowledge to make a positive difference in the world.

Or, extend learning in-class with gamified learning opportunities like those from EiE x Kahoot!. Jumpstart learning with environmentally-based kahoots that your students are sure to love.

Extending beyond the classroom. Support OST and at-home learning online with climate change lessons on our Learn.EiE platform. Videos, activities, discussion prompts, and more centered around climate change are available now for learners in grades 3–8. Sign up for this content and more today!
