There’s no better time for students to take up the Earth Hour challenge
Now in its 10th year, the Australian-borne Earth Hour movement is calling on school students to actively learn more about the importance of taking action on climate change. Earth Hour 2017 falls on 25 March, with the official Earth Hour Schools Day being celebrated on Friday 24 March.
The aim of organisers is to engage as many teachers and schools as possible to help educate students about the role they can play to shape a better future for themselves and generations to come.
Specially tailored classroom-ready lessons have been prepared by Earth Hour partner Cool Australia, to assist teachers with turning this event into a valuable classroom learning opportunity. Teachers are encouraged to start the conversation with the help of Australian curriculum aligned documentaries, digital worksheets, Smartboard lessons, posters and much more – which are all available free to download for pre-school, primary and secondary aged students.
Schools can register for Earth Hour Schools Day and also find a wealth of other resources available on the Earth Hour website - http://earthhour.org.au/schools/
