Conservation in the Classroom
Bring conservation and science to life by giving children the opportunity to hear from WWF experts. Through free 45-minute virtual events livestreamed on our website, children can listen as WWF experts share stories of their experience working to protect species and habitats around the world. As you watch live, you can submit questions for the expert, participate in polls and quizzes, and interact with the expert by showing how much you learned! These experiences are open to parents with children, teachers with students, and anyone interested in bringing conservation experts into your classroom or living room.

Nikhil Advani Director of Climate, Communities, and Wildlife
Species all over the world are being affected by changes in weather and climate including heatwaves, drought, and flooding. Join Nikhil to learn what's causing these changes; how animals like one-horned rhinos, African penguins, and tigers are impacted; and what WWF and partners are doing to protect these species. During this livestream, students will be able to ask their questions and learn what it takes to help wildlife in a changing climate.
Prepare for the session by downloading the free supplemental material pack for pre– and post–activities including bell-ringers, worksheets, Kahoot games and Wild Classroom activities.
Suggested grade level: 4th – 8th
Livestream: November 17th, 12:30 EDTAcknowledgement of ecosystem relationships: your place in the circle
Monica Terkildsen Native Nations Liaison | Northern Great Plains Program, WWF-US
All living things are connected and affect our daily lives. Giving space to acknowledge this connection draws a deeper understanding of the need to protect, and respect, the natural things around us. Join Monica as she shares stories describing these ecosystem relationships and provides guidance on how to recognize your own role within them. In this event, viewers will be taken on a journey through the circle beginning with our own minds, connecting to the root nation, the animals, the waters, and the heavens, and then returning to how we embrace our relationship with nature in our own way.
Suggested grade level: 2nd – 6th
