A World Worth Imagining can simply be a beautiful story-- a vision, that you share with your students, or it can be a jumping off point for discussions, activities and idea sharing. Together we can create a world worth imagining.
I have compiled and created some activities and lesson plans that you are welcome to use. They can be adapted for all ages, and can be used for your homeschool, classroom, family and friends.
If you are interested in having me facilitate a workshop or class, let's talk.
in the classroom
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead
To build a global community that is based on respect and compassion, we must start by creating cultures in our smaller communities that share those same values and truths. As the school year starts, this is the time that we as educators can begin (or continue), to help guide our students in creating classroom communities that embody our visions for a world worth imagining. It is the chance for us to practice being great humans.
This Earth Day tell a different kind of story, one with a different kind of message—
I invite you this Earth Day, to help inspire hope in our kids! A World Worth Imagining can help you do that.
You can mix and match activities to suit your time-frame, resources, and space. The possibilities are endless. If your time is limited, I suggest reading the story, followed by one of the Visioning Our Future activities and closing with an Honouring The Earth activity. I would definitely include a Connecting To The Wonder activity if I had the time and outdoor space!
Feel free to contact me with any questions.
Everyone dreams of a future they can look forward to!
HAPPY EARTH DAY
