Green Teacher

Green Teacher is a magazine for educators that informs them how to use the environmental issues in the classroom. It is a great resource for a teacher to have during an era when everyone is so conscious about the environment and what we are doing to it. Incorporating something like this in the classroom would not only inform but also catch the interest of the students.

Each issue contains:

  • Ideas for rethinking education in light of environmental and global challenges.
  • Practical articles and ready-to-use activities for various age levels from 6-18.
  • Resource reviews: evaluations of dozens of new books, kits, games and other green resources.

Teaching Students About Going Green

This is a little article about some of the different ways a teacher can teach students about going green. "New teachers have the benefit of going into their first teaching position fresh and with the newest teaching ideas, so what better time than to teach some green lessons?". This can be incorporated into a class lesson by simply having students write on recycled paper or writting an essay on the harmful effects of littering or why we should go green. When students are aware of the current issues today they can help put a stop to the harm we are causing our planet.
