Did you know that there are resources that you can borrow from the STA office courtesy of the Environmental Justice Lending Library? STA Members can borrow a title on a 30-day loan by contacting the STA at reception@surreyteachers.org . It will be delivered to you via courier at your school and you can return it the same way at the end of the loan period. This week we want to highlight the following resource: Teaching Kids about Climate Change, ed. Tim Grant, 2021 

This resource, created by Canadian educators, includes 20 activities for students in Kindergarten – Grade 8. These solutions-focused lessons touch on topics such as public transportation, food and climate change, the heat island effect, and the carbon cycle. Although most lessons were best suited for intermediate students, there were a few that would be suitable for younger learners, in particular, guided explorations of renewable energy sources that would fit well into science lessons you may already be doing.
