Although talking to young people about climate change can be challenging, preparing them to work towards solutions is an important part of their education.
With this in mind, our education team has developed a new teaching resource. Creating a Better Climate Future for B.C.: A Teaching Toolkit for Grades 6-8, outlines ten steps B.C. can take towards a safe and healthy future.
The toolkit was inspired by our new report The Future is Here, Sierra Club BC’s vision for a better climate future for B.C.
We’ve created 10 infographics to explain the 10 steps and put together sample lesson plans and activities to accompany each infographic. Together the infographics and suggested lesson plans could constitute a whole unit on climate change and how we can build a better climate future together.
We wrote this toolkit with students in grades six to eight in mind. However, we also feel that many, if not all, of the activities can be adapted both for lower and higher grade levels.
Check out our range of teaching resources and we encourage you to share this new resource with educators you know.
