In celebration of Earth Day, Discovery Education is offering dynamic content educators need to teach environmental, sustainability and science topics in the classroom. On April 19, 2011 at 1 PM EST, educators and students nationwide are invited to join Animal Planet’s Jeff Corwin for a free webinar offering an in-depth look at last year’s oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

In addition to the webinar, Discovery Education has created a special Earth Day collection of resources available through Discovery Education streaming. (Log in to DE to access these links.)
