We at EnglishCentral want to do more supporting teachers in their classrooms. Part of this will be helping you find very topical material for your students. So here’s a start with some recommendations for Earth Day, April 22nd.
First, look through our whole library of Environment videos. Lots there! Also, students can study Environment related vocabulary. I’d also recommend looking at our new Nat. Geo. courses - their videos can’t be beat, all graded/leveled and ready for practice.
Specifically, I’d recommend these 3 videos.
The Story Of Stuff: An informative documentary that will get students thinking about what happens to all the stuff we buy. Something we don’t often think about and which has a big consequence to future generations.
