Dear Healthy Planeteers,
Where do hundreds of geography teachers, free lesson plans, and Healthy Planet cross paths? Other than in the classroom on Earth Day, at the Geographical Association conference this past weekend! The annual GA conference is a forum for delegates, teachers, students, academics, and now Healthy Planet. It’s the largest event of its kind and includes informational lectures and debates as well as field visits and hands on workshops.
Maybe that’s why Healthy Planet works so closely with the GA.
Our lesson plans include information for students in the form of discussions and YouTube videos while still being fun and interactive, for example, placing footprints on devices that create a carbon footprint and making brochures about how to stay safe in extreme weather conditions.
We set up a booth at the conference to promote our FREE Earth Day lesson plans, which carry the GA seal of approval. Our lesson plans target primary students to teach them age appropriate lessons about environmental issues. These lesson plans can be downloaded from the website as can more information about our Earth Day programme. Schools are getting involved in this mass lesson to inspire primary children, the future generation of the UK and the future guardians of the Earth.
Putting ourselves on the conservation map,
