Climate Kids Traveling Trunks are education kits with everything that you need to teach youth about a variety of topics related to climate change impacts and solutions.
Each Trunk contains NGSS-aligned curricula that can be used and adapted for grade levels K-12. Lessons utilize hands-on science, art, and storytelling activities containing real data on regional impacts, accompanied by a Tribal Perspectives module. Traveling Trunks engage participants using a variety of learning styles, and include solutions-oriented approaches to learning about that science and impacts of climate change.
Climate Kids Traveling Trunks provide all the resources you need to teach climate science in the classroom. Which Traveling Trunk will you try?
