“Protect Your Climate” Curriculum
BAAQMD’s Protect Your Climate, the first comprehensive climate protection curriculum in California, offers 16 lessons for 4th and 5th graders that can be easily adapted for other grades.
Protect Your Climate’s lessons investigate the science and causes of climate change and how students can take action to protect our climate. Through hands-on activities, students learn ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from energy, waste, and transportation uses. Lessons are connected to the California state content standards.
The Air District developed Protect Your Climate as part
of its commitment to educate the next generation on climate
change. The curriculum is available for free on the
Air District’s website. For assistance in implementing
Protect Your Climate in schools and classrooms contact Jim Smith at the Air District.
