Build Your Confidence in Teaching Climate Science to Elementary School Children 

July 10th, 2023

Are you a K-6th grade teacher or non-formal educator interested in increasing your knowledge base on climate change? Join New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium this summer for a FREE workshop to learn more about climate science and effective ways to teach climate change to even the youngest of children.  Learn with us as we utilize New Jersey’s coastal ecosystems and help you adapt classroom-ready activities to fit your needs in this FREE one-day workshop at New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium’s headquarters in Gateway National Recreation Area on Sandy Hook. 

Discover ways to effectively communicate the science of climate change and its impacts, all while empowering and giving hope to elementary school students. Enhance your curriculum with new activities and  learn how to frame discussions on this sometimes difficult topic. Don’t fret over,  but learn how to incorporate New Jersey Student Learning Standards (NJSLS) for Climate Change Education into lessons you may already be teaching. Earn continuing 6 education credits, too! 

Learn to employ successful strategies to help students understand the complex subject of  climate change, inspire their curiosity, and motivate them to work towards solutions for the  climate-related environmental challenges that they may face in the future. All K-6th grade  teachers and non-formal educators are welcome to participate in this workshop.
