Over the years, Green Kids Club has been working with schools and environmentalists across the United States, as well as around the world. Our activities include everything from visiting classrooms to providing books and learning tools to grade level children, as well as sponsoring Environmental Clubs. As the saying goes, "Think globally, act locally." Take a look at some of the educational initiatives we've done here in the United States.
Love the Wild is partnering with
We're excited to help to bring classroom challenges to children around the world! We have developed a classroom challenge of our own with issues related to trash and plastic-contaminated waterways. Kids will learn about upcycling and plastics and create their own upcycled product that can either be used by animals or helps people to appreciate animals. In addition to building something new, their directions and photo of the product might be added to a Green Kids Upcycling Project book. Plus, participants who successfully complete the challenge will be eligible to receive a digital copy of Green Kids Club's new book, The Belize Trash Monster!
Inspired Classroom Challenges are content rich, authentic learning experiences. All challenges are standards-based and have been built in collaboration between curriculum and content experts. They are FREE to participants. They use an inquiry-based approach to learning and build skills such as critical and creative thinking, collaboration, and communication.
