"Encouraging Young Scientists" from the National Science Teachers Association has recently published a wonderful piece describing how to talk about climate change with elementary school and middle school youngsters. Check out the full article here.
Teachers can engage their students in one of the hottest topics in science with Understanding Climate Change, Grades 7–12. The NSTA Press book offers both extensive background and step-by-step directions for using three-dimensional instructional methods to explore this complex subject. Based on what they learn, students can use critical thinking and analysis to draw their own conclusions about what should be done.
A press release issued on 9/13/18 outlined the National Science Teachers Association's full position statement on climate change education. You may want to use it in working with teachers, education and community leaders, and the people you work with as evidence of the education profession’s support for and importance of teaching climate change.
