Explore the World with Virtual Field Trips
Designed for ages 9-15 but customizable for all ages, virtual field trips allow students to travel the world and explore natural environments without leaving the classroom. Each virtual field trip contains a video, teacher guide and student activities.
Ocean Heroes: Coastal Frontline Communities and Climate Justice
Made possible with support from the Bezos Family Foundation and Students Rebuild
The health of the oceans is suffering, and this has affected some of us more than others. Coastal communities, and those who are less-advantaged because they have less access to resources and face increased societal oppression, are more at risk from rising sea levels and storms. But there are some amazing groups working around the world to make change, educate their communities and build collective awareness. One featured partner, Minorities in Shark Sciences (MISS), creates K-12 content about sharks, skates and rays, the threats they face and conservation efforts to protect them. Courses include video lessons, activities, quizzes and action items.
