This printable poster is a beautiful visual reminder that healing the environment goes hand-in-hand with healing ourselves.
The included text and image will help students consider the interconnectedness of human and environmental health.
This resource is a printable poster that includes beautiful artwork and a meaningful message.
Students of any age will be able to analyze and reflect on the meaning of the artwork, leading to important classroom conversations.
Students should have a basic understanding of how human health can be affected by the environment.
Cross-curricular connections can be made in social studies classes considering how people deal with the changing environment, or in language arts classes thinking about connecting written messages with art.
Post this poster in a prominent area of the classroom and invite students to consider the image and message. Then, have students share their thinking with a partner and, eventually, the class. What is the message the artist is trying to convey? How does taking care of ourselves help us take care of the Earth?
Ask students to create their own poster using the same words and create a gallery wall of posters for your class to review.
This resource is a PDF printable poster from the All We Can Save Project. The poster would be a great addition to a classroom discussion about climate change.
