This "Back to School" bulletin board and classroom decoration kit provides teachers with printable materials or digital decorations to use throughout the school year as inspiration for climate education and taking climate action.
The Google Slides resource includes grayscale-friendly visual materials that encourage students to learn more about climate change, communicate what they learn, and take steps to reduce their climate impacts.
The slides are printer-friendly and can be used for both digital classroom decorations or in-class decorations.
The slides encourage students to teach family and friends about climate change.
Teachers will need access to Google Slides.
The file can be downloaded as image files or as MS PowerPoint.
The bulletin board could be used as a digital backdrop for an online classroom.
The letters could be printed on recycled paper and strung together with string for students to decorate and hang up in the classroom.
The bulletin illustrates the goal of SubjectToClimate and offers students a back to school "welcome package" on how to engage in climate conversations and actions. This is ideal for classroom use.
