Chelsea Connolly, Elisabeth Pearson and Samantha Benthien are interns with the History News Network.
This activity kit was edited by Chelsea Connolly and Kyla Sommers.
The goal of this activity is to teach students the history of climate change activism by engaging with secondary sources. To begin, the instructor will show one introductory video. Students will then break off into five groups, read their assigned article, complete the corresponding worksheet, and share their findings with the class. At the end of the lesson, the instructor will facilitate a discussion tying the different sources together. This packet includes: three video links to choose from, five group worksheets with an assigned article, and suggested discussion questions.
