EarthDay

 

There’s a great way to honor Earth Day right in your Discovery Education account: how about watching Planet Earth: The Future. It has really interesting segments: Conservation and the Save the Whales Movement, Sustainable Development, and Ecotourism… and, it wraps up with a segment called Hope for the Future.

 

 

Also, please let us know in the Comments section how you, your class, or your school is honoring Earth Day.

Today’s the day to get a peek into an awesome classroom called “The Firm”!

“The Firm” is a design and drafting classroom in Pennsylvania, led by a teacher named Scott Didra. The classroom is run like an architecture firm and students build actual, life-size buildings. Today, Discovery Education will be live-casting from this classroom, allowing students to get a peek into the amazing learning environment.

Join us — you can register yourself, as a student, if you have access to a computer and are available at stream time; or you can encourage your teacher to register and let the whole class participate.

Register HERE for the event on Tuesday, April 22, at 1:00pm ET.
