Now that most school testing is over, it’s time for teachers to teach the lessons they most care about and enjoy.
Why not use this time to teach students about the impacts they have on the environment? Use the momentum from Earth Day to connect student learning to what they heard about or did that day. Teaching students about the impacts they have on their environment can prompt behavior changes and emotional and intellectual benefits, regardless of the complexity of the lesson.
Why do you teach green?
With the #WhyITeachGreen campaign this May, Learning Lab education partners make it easy, fun and rewarding to teach green by recommending lessons, encouraging teachers to share their experiences and offering prizes for participation.
For the duration of the #WhyITeachGreen campaign, teachers can explore free sustainability-themed lessons on Learning Lab, teach lessons they’ve found and share their experiences for a chance to win prizes that will help advance their sustainability journey.
Prizes range from a free subscription to Learning Lab to teacher training and resources to Amazon gift cards. Visit the #WhyITeachGreen page at Learning Lab to learn more about how to qualify for prizes.
