Free webinar today teaches about Earth Day projects

The 40th anniversary of the global celebration of our planet and the environmental movement will be celebrated on Earth Day, April 22nd, and this month is ripe with activities and celebrations.

To help us prepare, PBS Teachers will host the next webinar in their series PBS Teachers Live! On Monday, April 5th, beginning at 2:00 PM: “Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day”.

During this event, participants will learn about two new PBS projects: Earth Days, a film by Robert Stone chronicling the history of the modern environmental movement, and Growing Greener Schools, a film and educational resources aimed at empowering students, teachers and parents to incorporate green ideas into both school buildings and classroom curricula. Presenters include the filmmakers and educational experts who will provide resources and strategies to help teachers celebrate this important anniversary in innovative and meaningful ways.

PBS Teachers offers a series of free webinars featuring leading education technology experts and PBS producers sharing resources and strategies to help teachers use digital media to engage students in rich learning experiences.
