Summary: Students will learn how to help the Earth, but mainly how to coexist with the environment. As educators, we will use many different methods to teach our students to live in a way so that our actions have a profound impact on the environment, and we need to protect the Earth for future generations. Talk to students about reducing pollution and waste management ideas, and help build animal shelters that escape forest fire like Quebec—technology-based lessons.
You and your students will:
- Learn about climate change – cause and effect.
- Use gained knowledge to make inferences to answer questions.
- Write goals for ways to help your community reduce pollution and waste.
- Write a song and sing along.
- Watch a music video by Michael Jackson on the Earth song.
- Solve word problems and fill in gap activities.
- Could you answer questions about carbon footprint?
- Experiment on science about global warming.
- More use of technology reduces paper use for activities, for example, workbooks and online live worksheets.

Some children need frequent breaks from learning. When these breaks are predictable, children will be less likely to request a break and more likely to stay on task.
When reading a book, ask your child questions about the story, such as “what do you think will happen next?” or “what is the problem in the story?”
Children often feel supported when you stay close by while they are completing tasks. If your child is struggling, provide him or her with a clue to the answer, or provide half the answer and have him or her complete the rest.
Children feel proud of themselves when they work hard to meet a goal. You can create goals with your child by asking him or her what he/she wants to learn or improve at, and why. Read Howard Gardner's theory of nine multiple intelligences to understand child's proness.
Children benefit from being told what they are doing right or wrong in the moment. You can minimize how often your child practices a skill incorrectly by correcting him or her right away, rather than waiting until he or she has finished the task.
Show your child you have high expectations for his or her learning. You can do this by encouraging your child to try new things that may feel hard. Having ongoing conversations about your child’s goals throughout the week will show him or her that you see the goal as important.
You can build your child’s self-esteem if you praise or reward his or her effort even when a goal is not met.
