The Environmental Situation Cards are a great resource to increase your class’ awareness about important environmental concerns. Presenting 50 common issues affecting people around the globe, this resource asks questions for students to consider on areas such as global warming, renewable resources, fossil fuels as well as common conversation topics. Each card features information about a topic along with follow up questions which would be useful to practice reading comprehension or provide provocations for journal writing or group discussions. Suitable for students in junior grades and above, the kit contains 50 cards and a teacher’s guide.
You can view the activity kit in person at OISE Library by visiting the Ground Floor coffee table, adjacent to the Circulation Desk. You can also view this item as well as other hands-on learning resources in the OISE Library K-12 Manipulatives Database.
