Free Educator Guides For Earth Hour

EARTH HOUR, by Nanette Heffernan, offers a range of layered concepts—from basic to more complex—supporting environmental literacy in grades K-6, and Reading Buddies programs popular in many schools. This guide was co-developed by author Nanette Heffernan, and Sharon Angal, recipient of the Presidential Award For Excellence Science and Mathematics.  It draws on CCSS – NGSS standards, Nanette’s 15 years experience of working with children and schools on environmental issues, and Sharon’s expertise in teaching science. The activities will encourage students to think critically about the many ways our daily choices impact Earth and its ecosystems and how children can be part of the solution to reverse climate change.
