22nd April: Earth Day

How do we mark Earth Day while we are in a lock-down? This is the question that students address in this online lesson by Stefanie Ritch for her assignment in the online course ‘Language Teaching for the Planet’.

Ideal for teenagers and adults B1 above and designed for online teaching. Students will:

  • learn about Earth Day
  • engage with a poem by spoken word artist Prince Ea
  • discuss ways to celebrate Earth Day during lock-down

Here are the slides for the lesson:

A festive gift from teachers to teachers!

Look at this wonderful resource pack created by language teachers on the online course Language Teaching for the Planet. It is a bank of lesson ideas that embed an environment issue into the language classroom that we created as the final task on this course. What do you think of that?

The original idea was each of us to create a lesson each but this morphed into creating a resource pack to share with all of you.

Happy reading and may your students benefit from these lessons!
