How to Take Action!
Cathryn Berger Kaye, M.A. 
A Kids’ Guide to Climate Change & Global Warming

Do you want service learning activities and projects for middle and high school kids that make a difference on the local, national, and global scene?

This free workbook, part of Free Spirit's How to Take Action! series by internationally renowned service learning expert Cathryn Berger Kaye, is what you need. Click to download it now

A Kids' Guide to Climate Change & Global Warming teaches about current issues related to climate change, such as:
  • carbon footprints
  • "foodprints" (how the food we consume affects climate change)
  • the greenhouse effect
  • alternative energies
  • deforestation
  • water conservation
  • severe weather
  • the history of environmentalism
  • effects of climate change around the world

Kids explore what others in the world (including young people) have done and are doing to address the issues, find out what their community needs, and develop a service project. The workbook includes facts, quotations, real-life examples, write-on pages, resources, a note to adults—and a lot of inspiration to get out there and make a difference in the world. Includes an exclusive interview with Reid Detchon, executive director of Energy and Climate Division of the United Nations Foundation.

Teachers, parents, and group leaders: Use this workbook in a classroom or youth-serving organization, after-school program, or as a family. It can be used on its own or as a companion to The Complete Guide to Service Learning.
