April 22, 2020 marked the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Even after 50 years of celebrating Earth Day, there is still much to do. However, according to the Earth Day Network (earthday.org), there is great hope for “a global outpouring of energy, enthusiasm and commitment to create a new environmental paradigm.”
This generation can be the driving force behind this renewed enthusiasm, and can bring others, such as parents and teachers, along with them! In these lessons, you get to excite students about the ways they can make a difference. They learn how to become advocates for change!
Prepare themselves by learning about energy efficiency and conservation, renewable energy and what their peers are already doing to take action in these areas.
Select a topic and craft a message in the form of a Public Service Announcement (PSA) to inspire others to take action to save the environment.
Be EM-powered to take their message into the community and invite others to take action to preserve the Earth!
