We invite you and your classroom to join us at our live Eyewitness: Earth Day Storytelling Slam! The lineup of storytellers and performers include people who have profoundly impacted the climate change movement. We will hear from artists and storytellers featured in our new book, Eyewitness: Minnesota Voices on Climate Change (launches April 22)!

Ways Your Classroom Can Join In

Participate in the livestream (11 a.m.–12:30 p.m. CDT) by registering on Crowdcast! Your students will be able to participate in the chat and ask questions.
Watch the livestream on YouTube! If you don’t want your classroom to have to register on Crowdcast, head to the synced stream link and participate that way. Can’t tune in live? The recording of the Slam will be available on YouTube immediately after.

Use Our Earth Day Lesson Plan
You can use this lesson plan, Earth Day 2020: Climate Stories, Art, and Music for the Virtual Classroom, to bring Earth Day to your virtual classroom alongside the Slam. Included in this lesson are a series of activities and a collection of some of the stories shared in the Slam for students to read on their own!

We encourage you to join us as we celebrate each other and the earth. Let’s find strength and connection within our communities, even if we cannot meet in-person.
