Engaging Middle School Students on Climate Change

by Erin Twamley and Joshua Sneideman
(Washington, DC, USA)

For more than 200 years, scientists have been observing, measuring, and analyzing information about our planet’s climate.

In addition, studies from the Antarctic, the Amazon, the Great Barrier Reef, and beyond show that the Earth is in constant transition, and that humans have an effect on what happens.

Book for Young Readers

The idea of climate change can be scary, but every one of us has the ability to make a difference. In the new book Climate Change: Discover How It Impacts Spaceship Earth, young readers examine real studies concerning planetary science, Arctic ice bubbles, carbon measurements, and more.

The book encourages kids to be inspired and take actions to help with climate change. This book encourages kids to become responsible caretakers of a sustainable planet.

Also, this book takes kids on a journey explore the history of human impact from the Industrial Revolution to today, as well as the science and engineering innovations underway around the world to address global climate change.

A Pro-Active Approach

While focused on a pro-active approach to environmental education, Climate Change: Discover How It Impacts Spaceship Earth engages readers through hands-on activities, such as building a solar pizza oven and observing the changing forms of matter, along with the deconstruction of myths, hypotheses, and communications.

Kids are directed to digital supplemental materials that enhance the discussion of climate change and make complex concepts easier to understand through visual representation.

Climate change offers a way to think of our spaceship, Earth, as the singular resource it is.
