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.
Livestream: Thursday, September 30th at 1pm EDTLeftover Lunch: How Saving Food Saves the Planet
Alex Nichols-Vinueza and Julia Borland from WWF's Food Waste team
Each year, up to forty percent of all food produced for people globally is lost or wasted. A significant contributor to this statistic is food waste from school cafeterias. Start your students on the right foot this school year by introducing responsible food habits for them to put into practice every day. Kids will learn the connection between how they treat food and the health of our planet, in hopes that they will think twice before sending their leftover lunch to the garbage.
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
