Curriculum to Help Young Children Understand Climate Change

While curricula are available to help older children understand climate change, few education resources are geared toward early childhood. To help young children feel empowered in the face of climate change and anxiety, a Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) alum and early childhood educator, with guidance from an HGSE associate professor, has developed Earth Warriors—a comprehensive, developmentally appropriate, and scientifically accurate curriculum for young children.

The school curriculum currently has four subject-specific modules: (1) We Are Earth Warriors; (2) What Is Climate Change? (3) All About Waste; and (4) Community Project & Advocacy. Every year new modules will be added, and the curriculum will be updated based on scientific and pedagogical advances.

Schools purchase a yearly subscription to the curriculum. The subscription gives teachers access to the Earth Warriors portal, which has all the resources needed to implement the curriculum: teacher guides and overviews for each module, including subject-specific explanations and vocabulary, and 40 lesson plans for each age group with student activities and learning objectives. Earth Warrior teachers and students will also become part of a global community to connect likeminded teachers and youth around the world.
