Climate change can be a complicated and scary topic. But what if I told you it isn’t actually that difficult for children to understand? Climate change affects each and every one of us after all, no matter how young or old we are. When I was seven years old, I learned about proper waste segregation in school: We had trash bins all over the campus labelled “Biodegradable” and “Non-Biodegradable” and we’d even get quizzed about which materials would go in which bin.
In simple ways like this, young kids are taught early on how to protect the environment. So let’s get the kids involved in our fight against climate change! I did some research and even asked two educators for some tips for teaching your kids about the issues affecting our environment today and what they can do about them.
