New Resource: A toolkit for Climate Change Education

Want to inspire our youngest generation about the climate?

Have a screening party of “Simon Says ‘Save The Climate!,’” a fun kids cartoon presented by Unicef and The World’s Largest Lesson in support of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal of Climate Action.

The program is available to download for free or by donation at Hippoworks.com. After watching the half-hour film, play a memory game with kids to reinforce some good green habits, share the coloring sheets, and even organise a mural painting day which feature the characters and eco messages.

Below is a plot summary, some reviews, along with pics of kids and the program in action!

Plot Summary: Go on a song-filled cartoon adventure with Simon the Hippo and friends as they learn about the world’s changing climate, the role that carbon dioxide and methane play, and the good eco habits we can all develop to help. Along their way the animals find out about topics such as the Greenhouse Effect, the Food Chain, the “Three Rs” (Reducing, Reusing, Recycling), Composting, and Carbon Offsetting.
