Workshop: Building Confidence in Teaching Climate Science in Elementary Classrooms

Are you a K-6th grade educator interested in increasing your confidence in teaching students about climate change? Join New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium this summer to learn more about climate science and effective ways to teach climate change in this 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 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 are welcome to this workshop. View the full flyer here.
