Classroom Education

Climate Change Education Centre (CCEC) educators provide free, curriculum-linked classroom presentations on climate change for grades K-12 in Newfoundland and Labrador. These presentations are specifically designed to explain the science behind climate change in an engaging, age-appropriate manner. Our educators make students feel empowered by discussing actions we can take to mitigate climate change.

What to Expect

Primary

(K – Grade 3)

The presentation consists of a quick discussion on climate change followed by a reading of our digital storybook, “The Climate Change Club Helps at Home.” The book follows our Climate Change Club characters taking a road trip across NL – including stops in Hopedale, Conne River, Ramea, and St. John’s! – to explore ways our communities are tackling climate change. If time permits, the presentations will conclude with a short video about ways to mitigate climate change at home (featuring our mascot Polly the Polar Bear).

Length: 30 minutes

Bonus: Each student will receive a copy of  “The Climate Change Club Helps at Home" book to take home!

Elementary

(Grades 4 – 6)

We will deliver our “Together for Change!” PowerPoint presentation. The slideshow features a general background on the science of climate change, how it impacts the world, and ends with a discussion about practical solutions to mitigate climate change in our everyday lives.

Length: 50 minutes

Junior and Senior High

(Grades 7 – 12)

We deliver our “Climate Change: Our Global Challenge” presentation. The slideshow explores and discusses the human impact of climate change, and how it’s impacting Newfoundland and Labrador and our global community. We end with a discussion about practical solutions to mitigate climate change in our everyday lives.

Length: 50 minutes
