LIVE EARTH SHORT FILMS on Scholastic's new Act Green! kids website
Kids care about the climate crisis too! Scholastic is launching ACT GREEN! at www.scholastic.com/actgreen, a fun, educational website designed to motivate and empower kids to take action in school, at home and in their community to preserve the environment. This multi-media website provides kids, parents and teachers with customized green plans, expert tips, and a “Greenroom” to share ideas with other kids.
Live Earth is pleased to provide several films from the Live Earth Film Series for kids, parents, and teachers to view on the ACT GREEN! site. Live Earth commissioned award-winning filmmakers from many genres to create inspiring shorts. The films range from factual and dramatic to fictional and comedic, and are directed by many of the industry's most prominent filmmakers. We've selected those most appropriate for young people and educational use and shared them with Scholastic's ACT GREEN!
Teachers and parents can access ACT GREEN! to learn about ways to engage their kids in green activities in school and at home. Like Live Earth, ACT GREEN! is focused on solutions to the climate crisis; the site offers extensive list of more than 100 action items that can be easily implemented in a classroom or home environment, along with a selection of green-themed books. Teachers can also download a climate change classroom poster from Scholastic complete with interdisciplinary curriculum created by Facing the Future (www.facingthefuture.org). To help get their classroom involved, teachers can download an ACT GREEN! form to track the students’ green points and enter a sweepstakes to win a set of green-themed books for their classroom.
