Climate Change Showdown
Book the Climate Change Showdown in your classroom and let us inspire, educate and entertain your class.
*Roy Kanda’s Grade 7 class, Kathleen McNeely Elementary, Richmond BC, 2010-11.
The BC Sustainable Energy Association can help teach your students about climate change and the many solutions available to address this problem. The Climate Change Showdown encourages team work within the classroom and at home. Students work collaboratively with their families to reduce energy use while learning about positive and negative environmental consequences that result from individual and societal actions and behaviours.
The Climate Change Showdown includes:
- Climate Change Games played in the classroom
- The Climate Change Show video/DVD
- Pre and post-program material for more in-depth learning
- Guided worksheets and storytelling methods to learn about climate change
- Students take-home the Climate Change Showdown Contest with actions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help the province to reach reduction goals while having fun and giving students a chance to win prizes (available in English and French)
The program is free for schools (funded by our supporters) and takes 90 minutes to deliver in class.
