Recommended for grades 6-12. This two-part lesson guides participants through a new story of climate change using a lens of hope, equity, community resilience, and increased quality of life. After discussing the basics of climate science with graphs and personal stories, participants will use an interactive concept map and short video series to understand the link between consumer culture and climate disruption. They will then investigate a range of individual and collective actions to combat climate change through a ranking activity with Drawdown solutions and a climate justice mixer. The lesson uses a variety of teaching tools including short videos, visual mapping, ranking activities, pair-share, and an interactive mixer.
